Mountain Dew truck catches fire in Kentucky #Pray4BullittCounty

A semi-truck carrying 4,400 pounds of Mountain Dew caught fire on the Carroll Cropper Bridge in Boone County. The fire shut down all lanes of Interstate 275 in both directions on Tuesday afternoon.

There’s no word on what ignited the flame that ruined the multi-ton load of the sugary, citrus soda, but I can assure you the people of Bullitt County will not rest until justice is served.

For more on the story, read Fox 19’s report here.

    This was doubly depressing as it caused me to take a 1+ longer detour to another bridge.

    I guess the transportation of Mt Dew is a covert operation since the truck in question has zero advertising. Maybe the Mt Dew onboard was really Mt Dew(shine).
