A gory mass of pig carcasses toppled from a truck and scattered on a busy Florida highway on Wednesday morning.
Oh, the mess. Oh, the smell. Oh, Florida.
The pig pileup happened on Interstate 75 near Sarasota.
Several carcasses fell from a truck that failed to safely secure the already dead livestock on I-75 north near Fruitville Road around 9 a.m., the Florida Highway Patrol reported.
As of 10 a.m., one lane near mile marker 209 was closed, causing a traffic slowdown as crews worked to clean up — and hose down — the road because the “smell is so terrible,” tweeted Fox 13 News reporter Kim Kuizon. Kuizon said four carcasses fell onto the road, scattering body parts across the busy highway.
