An 18-wheeler hauling eggs overturned on a Houston freeway this morning. The accident left eggs splattered all over the north bound lanes of the heavily traveled road. Some of the truck's cargo also spilled onto the ground and vehicles traveling below the freeway. The driver of the truck wasn't badly injured, but the gooey mess had drivers scrambling to find a detour. The clean up took several hours. (------------)
