Mennonites help clear $60k worth of eggs spilled in truck overturn 


A group of citizens worked together to help clear a huge amount of eggs spilled in a semi truck wreck in Missouri on Thursday. 

The incident occurred on June 1st at around 6:15 a.m. in Pettis County near HH Highway and Cedar Lane. 

According to KOMU 8 News, the tractor trailer hauling $60,000 worth of organic, cage free eggs overturned in a construction zone, leaving a mess of spilled cartons. First responders then recruited people from a nearby mennonite community to help clear the splattered eggs. 

No one was hurt in the accident. It is not clear why the rig overturned. 

“This is just another great example of how this community comes together to assist when needed,” said Sheriff Brad Anders, who responded to the incident. “I am so very proud to live in such a community; we should all be proud.”
