NEW CASTLE, Del., Sept. 8 (UPI) — Several lanes on a highway in Delaware were closed after a truck carrying pennies overturned and spilled its contents onto the road.
According to WPVI the truck was headed to the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia around 2 a.m. Thursday before it crashed into a barrier, overturned and caught fire.
The driver suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene. It was unclear what led to the crash or if driver would face charges.
Traffic was detoured to a separate road for several hours as crews attempted to clear the roadway of pennies, gasoline and other debris.
