That new lower speed limit through Malfunction Junction seems to have done the trick.

Truck overturns, snarls Interstate 65 traffic

Of course, accidents like this are helpful, in that they reduce traffic speed from the posted limit of 50 miles per hour to 0 miles per hour.

Sorry--my fingers seemed to have wandered into Iranian territorial waters and were taken into protective custody. They are being well treated and would like to apologize for being tools of the Great Satan.

Guess the driver didn't get the memo; read the signs or see the flashing overhead message boards (those things are working now, right?).

Business as usual on the interstates.

I think he was just trying to set a world record for Largest Game of Pickup Sticks.

Not actually sure what caused it--he could have been swerving to miss one of the fine group of automobile drivers we have around here who decided he wanted to be where the truck was.
