ATLANTA TRUCK ACCIDENT WILL TOTALLY LEAVE A STAIN. ON THE HIGHWAY
So as you know buying ink cartridges for your printer is always an expensive endeavor. But I’m sure this won’t make that better! A truck in Atlanta just spilled over 40,000 pounds of printer ink on a local highway. So as you can see from the picture, that’s gonna leave a stain. But just how expensive will the crash end up being? A lot, a lot, a lot. The accident happened at about 2AM Wednesday morning. Some idiot in a car cut in front of the truck as they were both heading south on I-285. But as can happen when you’re cut off, the truck driver lost control.
40,000 POUNDS OF BLACK PRINTER INK WILL STAY QUITE A QHILE
So that’s how the 40,000 pounds of printer ink then sprayed out across several lanes. As you can imagine, the accident and spill caused major delays. The highway is open now. But that gigantic stain will be there for some time to come. Fortunately, the accident didn’t cause any injuries. But so far, we have no idea whose company just took a bath with this accident. So just imagine what the scene must have been like for those nearby. I’ve been near some gruesome, even fiery, accidents. But I’ve never seen a major spill accident of any kind. And this one will be quite expensive, no matter what.
BUT THIS MOST EXPENSIVE LIQUID LOSS IS BETWEEN , $12-14 MILLION!!
But that’s because black printer ink is one of the top priced liquids across the world. The math is undeniable. The cheapest black ink you can replace costs $13 just for one ounce. That means one gallon can vary in price from $1,664 all the way to $12,160. If you search online, you’ll find that printer ink by the gallon costs $2,700. So how many gallons are in 40,000 pounds? The math says 4,793 gallons. But then the numbers get astonishing. So this crash lost $12, 941,00 in lost printer ink. But others have estimated the value at over $14,000,000!
