Things That Fall Off Trucks

Via Danger Room, here’s something that you may not want to know (or think) about: semis hauling nuclear material around America.

Cause for concern? At the end of her post, Sharon Weinberger notes that

Earlier this week a semitrailer carrying missile parts (but no nuclear material) operated by the U.S. Air Force overturned in North Dakota.

In the comments, a reader reminds us that such unfortunate mishaps do occasionally happen:

Don’t forget the transport truck that accidently let a cruise missle fall out of the cargo hold a couple years ago”¦ in the Bronx.

To which the next commenter wryly observed:

Lots of things fall off the back of trucks in the Bronx.
