Truckers and chili rarely a good combination

LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — Police say a lumber truck crashed into a Massachusetts home after the driver was knocked unconscious when he choked on chili from Wendy’s.

Lowell police say Eric Gremm reported that he choked on the chili when the truck hit a bump, causing him to pass out. The flatbed truck veered off the road and slammed into the foundation of the home.

The 59-year-old Tyngsboro resident was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Police say he could be cited for eating while driving.
