A Utah County stretch of Interstate 15 had not just one bad case of crabs Friday morning, but tons of the crustacean delicacy spread on the asphalt like a sashimi feast fit for Paul Bunyan.
Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson said "the majority" of the 75,000-pound load of frozen crab being hauled by a semi-trailer rig spilled when the truck and its trailer rolled on a curve of the southbound off-ramp to Spanish Fork.
Johnson said it appeared the semi's driver had trouble negotiating a right turn, over-corrected and then tipped over at 5:36 a.m. The rig, owned by SDI Logistics of Ontario, Canada, struck a guard rail and sign, which tore open the trailer.
