Ya Gouda Watch Out For De-Brie After Cheese Truck Crashes Near Canberra

Toasties all round!

Be alert and be hungry. A truck has crashed carrying cheese. We repeat: a truck carrying a delicious cheesy cargo has rolled and the area is currently curd-oned off.

As The Canberra Times reports, emergency services were called to the crash on the Hume Highway, south of the tiny village of Breadalbane, NSW, about 8.10am on Friday, because of course a cheese accident happened near a town with "bread" in its name.

The boys and girls in blue wasted no time adding a few cheesy puns of their own.

It is not clear whether the truck jack-knifed. but a NSW Fire & Rescue spokesman told Fairfax Media that "work is underway to remove the cheese and salvage the truck".

We would have salvaged the cheese first, but only because we camembert the thought of it going to waste.

Anyway the good news is there is no longer Stiltons of cheese on the road.

In further good news, police said the driver was uninjured. We imagine he may be feeling rather cheesed off, however.
