Truck Overturns, Dumps Meat on Massachusetts Turnpike

In Massachusetts, the answer to "Where's the beef?" is a toll plaza on the turnpike.

State police say the chain-reaction crash happened at about 2:30 a.m. Monday at a toll booth in Weston, about 15 miles west of Boston.

Sgt. Michael Popovics says a truck carrying tomatoes was stopped at a cash-only lane when a car and two other trucks approached from behind. The last truck in line — the one carrying the beef — struck a third truck carrying plastic foam cups and tipped over.

Some slabs of beef that one of the trucks was transporting spilled onto the road.

The state Public Health Department was called to the scene because of the spilled meat, MyFoxBoston reported.

The car driver suffered minor injuries.

The scene was cleared by about 10:30 a.m.

The crash remains under investigation. No charges have been filed, MyFoxBoston reported.
