This crash occurred on Lehigh Valley roadway. Interestingly, the roadway is a hotspot in Pennsylvania for traffic accidents. It is along Route 33 near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

When arriving at the scene, shocked police found the aftermath of the incident. A cement truck, which seemed unharmed, was next to a small SUV smothered by wet cement. The two vehicles had collided.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the accident. Both firefighters and policeman affirmed that the roadway is well-known for incidents. Although, the likelihood of this accident seems almost comical. A group of fire-fighters posted the incident on Facebook. Interestingly, the comments were more about the humor in the accident rather than the accident itself.

It took multiple cleaning crews about an hour to remove the wet cement and clear the area. Car haulers had to move both vehicles.
