Big rig spills pig intestines on Kansas City highway KANSAS CITY — A tractor-trailer hauling pig intestine dumped its load Thursday across a downtown highway in Kansas City.

The Missouri Department of Transportation tweeted that at least three lanes of westbound Interstate 670 were closed Thursday because of the spill and that an emergency response truck with a snowplow blade was sent to the scene to help clean up the mess.

Transportation officials urged drivers to “(f)ind an alternate snout. Sorry, alternate route.”

Rattlesnake, uranium, whiskey found during traffic stop

GUTHRIE, Okla. — Police in Oklahoma say they found a rattlesnake, a canister of radioactive powdered uranium and an open bottle of Kentucky Deluxe whiskey during a traffic stop of a vehicle that had been reported stolen.

The traffic stop happened June 26 in Guthrie, about 30 miles (45 kilometers) north of Oklahoma City. Guthrie police Sgt. Anthony Gibbs told Oklahoma City TV station KFOR that police don’t know why the uranium was in the vehicle or how it was obtained, though uranium ore can be bought on Amazon.

Gibbs says police also found a gun in the console and a terrarium in the backseat containing a pet Timber rattlesnake.

Gibbs says the driver, Stephen Jennings, was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, transporting an open container of liquor and driving with a suspended license.

Jennings remains jailed in Logan County.
