Massive toilet paper shipment wiped out in fiery wreck

A tractor-trailer hauling a shipment of the hot coronavirus commodity crashed near Dallas early on Wednesday and caught fire, singeing thousands of rolls and spilling the rest all over an interstate, officials said.

The driver and his dog were not injured.

Traffic on Interstate 20 near Interstate 45 in Hutchins was snarled for hours because of the blaze, the Texas Department of Transportation said.

Demand for toilet paper has skyrocketed amid the coronavirus pandemic and lockdowns in effect across the nation.

Producers have ramped up production and shipping to resupply stores depleted by consumers buying in bulk.
