Some Valentine’s Day goodies are headed for the trash instead of stores after two semi trucks collide. D-P-S Trooper Tim Case says it happened on a stretch of westbound Interstate 8 at Butterfield Trail just after 5 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Case says, the first semi, for some unknown reason, rolled on its side, then the second one coming from behind rear-ended the first one. The impact burst open the doors of the first truck, spewing its contents out.

Case says the crash scattered roses and little gifts all over the freeway. Both truck drivers have been treated for minor injuries at the scene. The crash is being investigated.
