No use crying over this

What began as a contest between brother and sister to find “the strangest items to be spilled on the road” has now taken on a life of its own, says Dave Ference, operator of Alligators, bees, lots of beer and milk (pictured) are among the lost. The most recent calamity involved a truck that overturned in August between Parshall and Makoti, N.D., on the way to a launching station while carrying a Minuteman III ICBM rocket booster. Since truckers voiced concerns to him about respect for the rigs’ drivers, says Ference, accidents with injuries are not posted.
