An 18-wheeler crashed and spilled thousands of pounds of eggs in Dallas on Monday morning, shutting down westbound Interstate 30 near downtown during rush hour.
The 18-wheeler hit a bridge near I-30 and Interstate 45 and spilled 35,000 pounds of eggs all over the road, the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office told KXAS-TV.
Westbound I-30 is completely shut down as crews work to clean up the eggs, with no information on when it’ll open. Traffic was being diverted to I-45.
More images from that big mess on WB I-30 @ 45 in Dallas where all lanes are blocked this morning. Traffic forced to take 45. Avoid area. @wfaa @WFAADaybreak #Iamup #DFWTraffic

WFAA-TV reported it’s expected to take hours to clean up the mess.
