SHELLEY, Idaho -

Folks traveling through Shelley on Monday morning encountered some mashed potatoes after an overturned potato truck made quite a mess across from Dean Goodsell Elementary.

The truck tipped just before 8 a.m. The potatoes rolled across the corner of Center and State.

The spilled spuds were recovered, and two trucks and a front-end loader helped right the truck.

No one was hurt in the accident.

Shelley police said the crash might have been caused by a mechanical problem. Investigation is continuing.
