Massive omlette makes motorists scramble

Traffic had to scramble on an American motorway - when 165,000 eggs spilled out of an overturned trailer and created a 'river of yellow yolk'.

The massive pile of goo congealed and looked like a 'large omelette', forcing drivers to hit the brakes to avoid a sticky end.

Police in Virginia closed off the road for several hours while the runny load drained away.
Bizarrely, the truck driver fled the scene - presumably because he didn't want egg on his face.
