A chapter book waiting to happen

In northern Ontario last week, a truck containing $3 million of loonies and toonies crashed, spilling its loot all over the road. (True story.) This caused a chain-reaction crash in the opposite direction, and a candy truck also tipped onto the highway.

I’m guessing there was a pint-sized genius behind this crash. Can’t you see him? He’s sitting on a high stool before a massive computer screen. He’s created a graph showing all possible money truck/candy truck route intersections. Then, with the touch of a button, he makes something pop up on the road. Drivers swerve, tires screech. He cackles, from behind his screen. And meanwhile, his minions leap from the brush at the side of the highway and start scooping armfuls of treasure.

Pretty sure that’s how it happened.
