7) A truck carrying slime eels overturned on Highway 101, south of Depoe Bay, Oregon, on July 13. Unfortunately for the owner of this car, the eels secrete a slime when they are stressed. Police said as the truck driver approached road construction and tried to stop, one container flew off the truck bed and into the southbound lane, while the other containers spilled onto the highway, police said. The flying container hit one vehicle which then caused it and four other vehicles to be pushed into each other. Police said the people in the vehicle hit by the container suffered minor injuries. No one else was injured. Photo: Oregon State Police via EPA
