Stat

On Monday, a truck accident dumped 150,000 tomatoes on I-80 in California, injuring four people and creating a messy situation on the road. During the growing season, this is a major thoroughfare for tomato transportation—California produces around half of all processed tomatoes worldwide and 90% of them in the United States.
