YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. – State troopers and road crews had to scramble when a tractor-trailer crashed and spilled its load of eggs on a Detroit-area freeway. Trooper Jim Smiley says eastbound Interstate 94 in Washtenaw County's Ypsilanti Township reopened about 1 a.m. Thursday after being shut down for six hours.

Smiley says the driver fell asleep and his rig hit a guardrail and a bridge support beam that tore the trailer open and spilled hundreds of cartons of eggs along a 300-foot stretch of I-94.

Single-digit temperatures made for a frozen mess that Smiley says was scraped up by front-end loaders and put in dump trucks. Road workers then spread sand and salt on all three lanes.

Smiley says the driver will be ticketed. Road crews later brought in hundreds of torches and found the eggs would actually cook on the highway. One worker commented "They aint too bad if you dont mind a little grit in 'em".
