Potato Truck Hits Longview Bridge

An unusual scene today at a Longview railroad underpass as a truck full of potatoes spills its contents into a potato mess.

An 18-wheeler carrying thousands of pounds of potatoes hit the railroad overpass at Green and Nelson street around 6 a.m., spilling spuds all over the roadway.

The intersection was closed for more than an hour as crews cleaned up the mashed spuds.

Environmental health inspectors made sure none of the spuds were taken away on another truck.
