Bad collision - and a very big waste of the "other white meat."
- UNION, Ill. Two semi-trucks collided early Wednesday morning on Route 20, killing one driver, spilling tons of raw pork on the road and keeping a one-mile stretch of the highway closed for more than 12 hours.
About 4:50 a.m., an eastbound truck filled with 42,000 pounds of unprocessed pork collided with a westbound truck filled with garbage near Beck Road, McHenry County Sheriff Capt. Glenn Olson said.
No garbage was spilled, but Olson estimated about 14,000 pounds of pork was scattered as far as 150 yards from the scene.
