Truck Spills 45,000 Pounds Of Bolognese Sauce In A Delicious But Tragic Accident

On Sept. 12, in Shopshire, England, a large truck, or lorry, created a food mess of meaty proportions.

The truck appears to have been hauling at least 22 tons, or about 45,000 pounds of spaghetti Bolognese. The Shropshire Star reports that police aren’t sure what caused the accident, and that the driver declined to comment.

A police spokesman said, “There were around 20 tonnes of spaghetti Bolognese and it was just loose, the incident happened at about 11 a.m. and it appears no one was hurt which is the main thing.”

I’m always glad to learn that no one was hurt in these kinds of ordeals, but what was this driver doing with so much spaghetti? The road behind him is covered in orange pasta and sauce…

As he has declined to comment, we can only speculate. Was all of this premade for a restaurant? Perhaps the driver’s conscience kicked in while on his way to deliver, and he thought: “This Italian staple should only be enjoyed fresh and homemade!”

Probably…not. But it really should be enjoyed fresh and homemade.

Unfortunately for other drivers on the road, traffic was severely slowed and detoured in other directions.

The saddest part of this whole thing, to me, is the giant waste of such a tasty food. Seeing it strewn all over the highway and the truck almost makes me want to cry! And whoever was meant to receive that delivery is undoubtedly upset on a much larger scale. Also, I hate to think of the feelings of those who cooked all of that food!

Even worse…They’re going to have to roll up their sleeves and start all over again. How tragic!
