Semi Carrying Pork Spills Load Near Utica

Posted by wlpo on July 18, 2012

A semi carrying frozen pork overturned just east of Utica.

Just after 5 yesterday morning, Andrew Borg of Iowa hit a construction patch hole on eastbound Interstate 80 and went into a ditch.  The crash caused about 40 thousand pounds of pork to spill out of the trailer.  The meat was considered contaminated and taken to a landfill.

Borg was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center where he was treated and released.  He was ticketed for improper lane use.
