Manure Truck Dumps 20 Tons of You-Know-What on I-580

Categories: Transportation
What do you call 20 tons of manure dumped in Livermore? An improvement.

Sorry, it's a variation of a joke one year older than God's parents. But, on the serious side, traffic along the I-580, well, stinks after a big rig flipped over and dumped its load of organic fertilizer and bark on the westbound lanes.

The incident took place at about 4:30 a.m. when the driver purportedly blew a tire and lost control. As of 6:30 a.m., only one westbound lane was open and traffic was backed up for miles.

Their commutes, however, will be brightened by the sights and smells of Caltrans crews hauling off tons of manure.
