  • A truck carrying 10 tons of animal intestines spilled its load on a highway in the Netherlands.

  • Dashcam footage shows a wave of guts flying from the vehicle involved in a collision.

  • "It was a bit gross," said a driver whose windshield was splattered with bloody animal organs.

A truck crashed in the Netherlands and spilled part of its 10-ton, blood-soaked load of animal intestines onto the highway and other vehicles, Dutch authorities said.

Local news site Omroep Brabant reports that a truck broke suddenly and collided with another vehicle.

Dashcam footage from Jeroen Hendriksen posted to social media shows the wave of guts and gore flying from the vehicle as the collision happened on Thursday.



Speaking Omroep Brabant, Hendriksen said that he didn't know what had hit his screen, but then his windshield wipers revealed the substance to be "blood and pieces of animal."

"It was a bit gross," he said, saying the smell was the worst part of the incident.

It is believed the truck was coming from a nearby slaughterhouse.

The A67 road, close to the city of Eindhoven, was closed for most of Thursday night due to a mass clean-up operation.

The road has now been reopened.
