In a little town called Snohomish, Wash., nature called a dump truck driver hauling 49 tons of dirt Friday morning.
He should have let the call go to voicemail.
The 27-year-old, who was not identified in a HeraldNet.com story, stopped to take a leak along U.S. 2.
Apparently unfamiliar with the terrain, he pulled off onto the shoulder -- a slick spot. The truck slipped down the embankment and capsized, dumping the dirt into the river and backing up traffic for hours.
In case you were wondering, cops allowed the driver to empty his tank behind the truck.
