On June 16th, a truck spilled 18 tons of peas on a busy highway in eastern England, bringing traffic to a standstill for more than 12 hours. The truck overturned after colliding with a bus near Grantham in Lincolnshire. The 23 people on the bus were not seriously hurt, but traffic was diverted while authorities cleaned up the millions of peas. The road was reopened the following day.
