Down Like a Sack of Potatoes

There really isn’t much you can do when your trailer literally rips in half. You just got to call for a tow and start picking up the pieces.

This truck had 80.000lbs of Potatoes on it when it broke in half. The contents were laboriously loaded onto another trailer for delivery before the two halves could be craned from the scene by Big Rig Towing.

This scene reminds me of an old Harry Chapin song involving Scranton, Pennsylvania and another load of ill-fated goods. I think in that case it was bananas.
