Smashed eggs clutter Route 125 in Hegins Township, Pa., Tuesday morning, Sept. 24, 2019, after a truck overturned spilling tens of thousands of eggs onto the road. These were fertilized chicken eggs on their way to an incubator. Police say a tractor-trailer driving through Pennsylvania lost over 136,000 eggs when its load shifted. In total, 11,340 dozen eggs and 2,260 gallons of egg product were lost as 66-year-old Joseph Miles drove through Hegins Township Tuesday morning. Police say Miles was driving north on Route 125 uphill. As he approached the Route 25 intersection, the load shifted causing the eggs to fall and roll down the hill. Miles reportedly did not realize the eggs had fallen and continued his drive. (Frank Andruscavage/Republican-Herald via AP)
