Emergency services scrambled to the scene of an eight-truck crash in the early hours of this morning, that left egg yolks strewn across a motorway in Italy.

The incident happened after a number of trucks rear-ended each other on the A1 motorway between Parma and Fidenza.

The crash saw one of the trailers overturn, sending its cargo of egg yolks across the highway.

One truck driver suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident, according to reports.
