Truckload of potatoes headed to Buffalo up for grabs after crash

WILSON, Wyo. (AP) — A truckload of potatoes is up for grabs after a truck tipped over on a Wyoming highway.

Shacorey Carter was not seriously injured Saturday night when the truck rolled on its side after his brakes failed while coming down a mountain.

The Jackson Hole News and Guide reports 50-pound sacks of potatoes were being given away at the Big Bear Towing shop and there were plenty of potatoes left over.

Kirby Orme, of Big Bear Towing, says the potatoes will be given away until they start to sour, and then they will go to the dump.

The truckload of potatoes was headed to Buffalo, where Carter lives.
