Zamboni

On December 18, 2008, preparations were underway for the NHL Winter Classic at Wrigley Field on New Year’s Day. Unfortunately, one of the Zamboni’s took a bit of a spill of the end of the truck it arrived on. Fortunately, the driver and the Zamboni were OK. Scroll down for rare truck spill “video” of the incident! Although it seems more like a bunch of still images put together into a video.

Construction of the rink for this game requires 52,000 sheets of plywood, 20,000 gallons of water, and 350 gallons of paint.

Styrofoam

On May 11, 2009 in Nashua, NH, a bunch of styrofoam blew off a truck on the Everett Turnpike. Obviously, from the picture, the styrofoam was run over and broken up quite a bit. Highway crews cleared the road.

Extreme Makeover Walls

On Saturday, June 27, 2009, a truck carrying prefabricated walls to an Extreme Makeover house in Erie, PA flipped, spilling concrete and prefabricated wall panels for the new home.

In addition to the cleanup of the walls, the contractor had to rush to get new panels for the house, which must be completed by Thursday, July 2.

The road was closed while they clean up the walls.

Presumably, the spill will be featured on the Extreme Makeover Home Edition show.

Auto Parts

On February 15, 2010, in Windsor, Canada, a tractor-trailer side-swiped a minivan, causing the truck to go out of control and overturn.

The top of the overturned truck tore open and spilled approximately 40,000 auto parts through a chain-link fence and into a bridge plaza property close to customs offices.

The minivan’s occupants, a family of four from London on their way to Florida, suffered only minor injuries. The truck driver had to be freed from the truck and was treated and released.

It took almost 8 hours to remove all the auto parts.
