On April 8, 2003, a semi trailer lost it’s load on the Sturt Highway (not sure where this is) when a rope snapped. 53 bins, totaling 26 1/2 tons of oranges covered the road.

Darryl sent me an email saying…

“The Sturt Highway (named after an early explorer) runs through Mildura in the heart of South Eastern Australia’s citrus growing area, on the Murray river.
Always like a good truck spill!”

Thanks Darryl!
