Three tonnes of animal parts spread all over the road made for a very nasty cleanup for Norfolk firefighters and road crews, Tuesday afternoon.

A straight truck carrying the animal parts was traveling westbound on St. John’s Road East near Port Dover when it left the roadway at shortly after 3 p.m., rolling over and spilling the carcasses along the road.

The driver, a 36-year-old Exeter man, suffered minor injuries. He was transported to hospital for treatment. Norfolk OPP Const. Ed Sanchuk said the fact the driver was wearing a seatbelt likely saved his life.

‘This scene was very challenging, to say the least, due to excess fluids on the roadway,” Sanchuk said.

Firefighters had to wash down the road to remove the debris to prevent wildlife from being attracted to it.

The road has yet to re-open.
