An 18-wheeler carrying 30,000 pounds of eggs overturned on the West Loop. The mishap sent an avalanche of eggs sailing over the side of the overpass, crushing a state Department of Transportation truck at a construction site below [...] As the day grew hotter, environmental workers stepped gingerly through the yolky mess, trying not to slip as they tiptoed down the overpass during cleanup efforts.

    Had this occurred in Phoenix, all they'd need for cleanup is a big-ass spatula.
