Heroic Food Truck Feeds Drivers Stuck in Massive Dallas Traffic Jam

Other drivers decided to park their cars and hit Whataburger

In the midst of a seriously massive traffic jam at the intersection of I-635 and U.S. 75, a heroic food truck began serving drivers stuck on the highway.

A tweet posted by Tracy Clark shows the as-yet-unidentified food truck serving a couple stranded drivers near the High Five interchange. The jam, which could impact traffic all day long, was caused by a tanker truck that overturned early this morning, requiring a “hazardous materials clean-up,” according to NBC DFW, and forcing all lanes on Central Expressway and LBJ Freeway to close. Some drivers were stuck on the highway for upwards of two hours in the middle of rush hour, which could explain why they were so hungry.

In addition to those food truck eats, NBC also reports that some stuck drivers actually parked their cars and went to Whataburger, which may be the most Texas decision of all time.
