Some clean-up crews have all the luck.

A tractor-trailer loaded with 16 missiles for the U.S. military crashed at a rest stop on Interstate 90 in Idaho on Friday.

Idaho State Police say the 47-year-old driver was in a rest stop when he mistakenly drove into the hazardous materials containment area instead of the interstate on-ramp. He ended up driving over a snowbank and disabling his truck. He was uninjured, according to

Ordnance specialists from nearby Fairchild Air Force Base assisted area law enforcement. I-90 was closed for four miles in each direction for several hours. The driver was cited for inattentive driving.
