Yesterday, on June 3rd, an 18-wheeler turned over on I-35 in Dallas causing a traffic nightmare for motorist that evening. However, it wasnothing compared to what went on the next morning. This truck was packed full of Honey Made graham crackers that were scattered along the road side during the accident. Motorist in the morning caused mayhem parking on the shoulder and running across the freeway to get their hand full of graham crackers. WFAA-TV was on the scene and captured numerous people making there way to the pot of gold that lie on the side of the freeway. Some were quoted as saying that it’s a miracle and they are grabbing them for their kids, for snacks.
By 10 a.m. county health officials ruled that the side of the street snacks were unsafe for consumption after sitting out in the sun for so long. This message didn’t deter all as a lady was quoted as saying, “I’m going to make a graham cracker pie,” after hearing the news from the health official.
Also on the scene was an insurance adjuster for the trucking company trying to tally the loss.
Looking at this news story and laughing was my initial reaction. Then I remembered all the times you see someone broken down on the side of the road, or someone in need of help, yet everyone is too busy or in too much of a hurry to stop. If there are graham crackers involved though, we have time.
