Ploughs about this for a roadblock?
Frustrated motorists in southern China, just had to grain and bear it when a lorry carrying more than a ton of corn overturned in Nanning city.
Trucker Feng Lu told police he'd skidded when he tried to break on the wet road.
But accident investigators discovered the truck was carrying more than double its legal payload and had turned over when the load shifted on a bend.
"The load was too heavy, too high and unsecured," said a police spokesman.
Driver Feng was forced to clear the road with shovel and his load was not allowed to continue its journey until two trucks arrived for it.
"The road was closed for five hours causing a major blockage for many other motorists. It was entirely the truck driver's fault," said one officer.
