Truck Carrying Onions Flips on Las Alturas

VADO, NM - Onions tumbling across the road might not be something commuters expect on their way home, but that’s exactly what New Mexican residents encountered this last Monday.

According to Las Cruces Sun News, a semi-truck carrying onions flipped on Las Alturas Drive near Vado, New Mexico. New Mexico’s Department of Transportation and State Police worked alongside a towing crew to clean up the scene of the rollover. The crash occurred shortly before 3 PM, and the road was blocked for hours afterward.

I can’t help but imagine a Shrek-like monologue lamenting the layers of onions strewn across the road.
