Pennsylvania state police report that sneeze was cause of truck driver's one-vehicle car accident. Pennsylvania troopers have stated that, this past Thursday afternoon at around 2:00pm, the truck driver lost control of his truck on Interstate 70 near Washington, Pennsylvania. According to authorities, the driver apparently blacked out after sneezing, causing the vehicle to overturn, spilling corn syrup and disrupting traffic. Specifically, the tanker truck veered off the roadway and hit an embankment before rolling onto its side and sliding to a stop, blocking both eastbound lanes. Workers reportedly collected a few hundred gallons of corn syrup in metal drums and laid anti-skid material to help soak up what was left and prevent further injury or damage. As a result, eastbound traffic on interstate 70 was backed up for 13 miles while interstate 79, which has an interchange near the sit of the accident, incurred 8 miles of southbound traffic. The driver of the vehicle, a 52-year-old man of Carrollton, Ohio, was hurt, yet no further details of his condition were released.
