A trucker Wednesday swerved to avoid hitting a car that spun out of control on an interstate in Maine and wound up dumping 30,000 pounds of fresh Canadian lobster on the highway.
But, here’s the good news:
- No one was injured in the crash on I-95 near Augusta, Me.
- It’s doubtful the driver, Horst Puff of Greenfield, Nova Scotia, Canada will be charged
- And, the lobsters — valued at $300,000 — survived, were inspected and sent on their way to dinner plates in New York and Rhode Island.
Puff drives for Gerhardt Trucking of Riverport, Nova Scotia. Another driver and a dog were in the cab at the time of the accident.
