20130813_013816WYOMING, Mich. — There’s an old saying that it’s no use crying over spilled milk, and that’s especially true when the spill involves a few hundred gallons on a busy street in West Michigan.

Shortly after 1:00 a.m. on Tuesday, a Country Fresh Dairy truck lost its load at 28th Street and Clyde Park.  The driver was coming from Breton, and somewhere along the way his load shifted and the strap that secures the milk carts had broken.


The carts — each of which contains upwards of 120 gallons and weighs 1200 pounds — rolled to the back of the trailer and busted the door.  The pictures tell the rest of the story.  Five carts of milk, orange juice, and chocolate milk fell off the truck.  The driver didn’t realize he had lost his cargo until he got to his next stop and everything was gone.

The Wyoming Fire Department was called out and starting spraying the street down, while a replacement truck came to haul the mess away and salvage what was left of the undamaged load.

Everything was cleaned up well ahead of the morning rush hour.
