Fatal Crash Litters I-95 With Thousands of Nickels

Perhaps we were a bit hasty this morning in awarding The Herald with the "Pulitzer for coverage of wacky traffic stories that perfectly illustrate the tragicomedy that is life".

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that a tractor-trailer carrying $182,000 in nickels headed for Miami was involved in a fatal crash with another big rig. Some of the coins were scattered across a section I-95 near Mims. The drivers of both trucks are in stable condition, but a passenger in the second truck died on the scene.
