Tons of salmon spilled on Tasmanian street

A truck carrying 250,000 Australian dollars ($246,000) worth of salmon has crashed in Tasmania, spilling 15 tons (14 metric tons) of fish into the street.

The crash in the capital of Hobart on Friday sparked a major cleanup operation and brought down power lines, cutting electricity to nearby suburbs.

Tasmania police told Australian Broadcasting Corp. that the driver crashed into a power pole and the truck tipped over. The driver and a passenger suffered minor injuries.
