Drivers on I-95 near Benton, Maine, might have thought they were witnessing a horror movie come to life earlier this week as a truck carrying 30,000 pounds of live lobsters overturned on the interstate during whiteout conditions.
According to a statement from the Maine State Police the driver, Horst Puff of Greenfield, Nova Scotia, swerved to avoid hitting a car that had spun out in front of him. Puff and his dog, Banjo, were not injured in the crash. No charges are expected to be filed. Puff was hauling the lobsters for Gerhardt Trucking of Riverport, Nova Scotia.
The wreck shut down the Interstate for several hours, and a crane was brought in to right the truck. As for the lobsters, they survived the crash and resumed their journey to New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
