Potatoes donated to needy after truck-train crash

MILFORD, DE The crash occurred Sunday on U.S. 13 in Milford. On Monday morning, the Department of Transportation emailed the Food Bank of Delaware and asked if it could use a dump truck full of potatoes, and the food bank immediately accepted.

Food bank spokeswoman Kim Kostes says volunteers sorted through the potatoes to remove the damaged ones. She says bags of potatoes will be offered to the food bank's 440 hunger relief program partners statewide.

Samuel Frymoyer, the driver of the tractor-trailer, says it's "awesome" that the potatoes are going to people in need. Milford police say Frymoyer is facing several traffic charges as a result of the crash.
