I remember back when I was a kid and I asked my mom what sausages were made of and she straight up refused to tell me because it was so rank and weird that we actually did that and now a couple of decades later I can see the innards in all of their glory thanks to this road accident over in Pittsburgh.
State Police Trooper Tyler Martier revealed that a tractor trailer semi truck had crashed on Interstate 70 in an area called Rostraver over the weekend, leaving one hell of a gross mess as 6800kgs of hot dog filler exploded onto he highway. Here’s what she had to say about the incident:
Due to the violent stopping motion of (the tractor-trailer) … the trailer became dislodged, causing approximately 15,000 pounds (6,800kgs) of hot dog filler to catapult on to the roadway.
The driver Makendy Lachald, was speeding around westbound near milepost 43 at 6:40pm, which made him lose control of the vehicle while driving off the right side of the highway.
Further investigation after the crash revealed that multiple brakes on the vehicle were completely inoperable, resulting in a total loss of stopping power.
Sounds like the perfect storm there really doesn’t it? Or the perfect giant hot dog filling mess or whatever. Looks seriously gross there doesn’t it, either like a fatberg exploded or The Blob got run over by a truck or something. Seriously gross.
Having said that I’ll probably still be eating hot dogs, even though I know what goes in them now. I doubt what they put in vegan/vegetarian hot dogs is even much more appetising to be honest. It’s all just mush at the end of the day isn’t it?
