New York meat truck driver charged in stinky spill

QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) -- State authorities have charged the driver of a truck that lost part of its load of expired meat outside an upstate New York mall, resulting in some irate motorists whose vehicles drove over the stinky spill.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports that the Albany man was charged with disposing of refuse on a highway.

Officials say the driver for Albany-based Baker Commodities was in the Queensbury area last month to pick up expired meat and grease from restaurants to take to a rendering plant. A door on the truck wasn't secured and meat slid out as he drove up a hill in front of Aviation Mall.

Dozens of vehicles drove through the spill and wound up having to be cleaned to remove the rotting remnants.
