Aw Nuts! Spill closes highway

August 17, 2006

Thomas County-  An overturned load of peanuts stopped traffic in Thomas County Thursday afternoon. 

Around one o'clock Thursday the driver of this Wilful Seed Company truck attempted to turn onto Highway 84 west from the 84 bypass when he says his brakes went out.

The load shifted, overturning the truck, and spilling peanuts across the two eastbound lanes. The Department of Transportation will examine the truck. The mess took more than three hours to clean up.
