A lorry crash left the A14 covered in tomato puree – 11 plum responses
The A14 in Cambridgeshire became a real-life joke set-up, when two lorries collided, spilling tomato puree and olive oil over the road, leaving a slick that looked like Quentin Tarantino’s idea of a buddy comedy.

Thankfully, nobody was seriously hurt, but we doubt the clean-up crew relished the prospect of dealing with it.
Under normal circumstances, an accident closing 23 miles of a major road would be no joking matter, but these weren’t normal circumstances, and the puns just kept coming.
Surely you can passata reasonable speed? 😬 https://t.co/39h7tp7xaN

A14 closed after two lorries spilt tomato puree and olive oil across the road. Apparently one lorry jack-knifed, causing the second one to jack-knife, in a dolmio effect. https://t.co/r9Lrn18hgQ

Apparently police are watching recordings on Ketchup.

The driver said he would've driven differently, with the benefit of Heinz sight. pic.twitter.com/inAb5j94pC
