Surprisingly, this is not the first time a US Air Force missile truck has crashed this year. However, it is the first time they probably needed to call SHIELD or The Avengers to fight the crash culprit: "a large insect".
According to the USAF, the driver lost control of the truck because a "large insect" landed on the driver's back. The truck was hauling Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile parts from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. Fortunately—and unlike other recent incidents that originated at the Minot Air Force base—the crash didn't involve live nuclear parts. Or Mothra. [Danger Room]
