🚚🍋 When Life Gives You Lemons…On the Highway?! 🍋🚚
TL;DR: Chaos unfolded on a New Jersey highway as hundreds of lemons rolled free from an overturned tractor-trailer. 🍋🚧
It was a zestful morning in Bergen County, New Jersey, especially for drivers on Route 17. Picture this: you’re on your way to work, listening to some morning radio jams, and suddenly you’re dodging… lemons? 🎵🍋
Yep, that’s right. On Wednesday, in an event fit for a quirky rom-com, a tractor-trailer flipped its lid (literally) and gave the commuters a fruity surprise. So what went down? Well, near Mountainside Avenue in Mahwah, around the prime-time of 10 a.m., this truck just lost its cool in the northbound lane. One minute it’s hauling lemons, the next, it’s disco-dancing its way into another vehicle. 💃🚚💥
And because it wasn’t sour enough, the container said, “I’m out!” – breaking free and smashing into an overhead sign. That’s when the real citrusy spectacle began – unleashing hundreds of lemons cascading into the southbound lanes. Imagine the look on drivers’ faces as they saw the wave of yellow coming at them! 😲🍋🌊
But, the pulp doesn’t stop here. Both the citrus chauffeur and the unlucky driver of the second vehicle were whisked away to the hospital. Thankfully, nothing life-threatening – just probably a bruised ego and a serious vitamin C overdose.
The aftermath? Traffic was stuck in a limbo. All lanes said “nope” and closed off. But, by the time the clock struck noon, the southbound lane decided to be a sport and let some cars through. And by 4:30 p.m., the northbound lanes, not wanting to be left behind, followed suit.
Let’s not forget the sign, though. It survived the lemon barrage but was deemed too “squeezed out” by the NJDOT engineers, and they declared it needs to go.
So, the next time you’re stuck in traffic, wondering why life’s giving you such a hard time, just remember – at least it’s not throwing lemons at you. Or is it? 🤔
