Overturned truck; carcasses spill onto road
At a junction of the A50 near Son, Brabant, a truck full of carcasses turned over, spilling its macabre contents all over the ground. It is still unclear how exactly this could have happened. The driver himself was able to climb out of the vehicle, though any injuries are unknown. The junction is now open again, but there was a 12-kilometer traffic jam as a result of the accident this morning. The slaughterhouse waste was spread over the road and took Rijkswaterstaat (The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment) several hours to clean up. No other cars were involved in the accident.
