WICHITA — Seafood Shop co-owner Jessica Eberth is stunned to report that she didn’t have fresh fish to sell Saturday because either a tornado or straight-line winds destroyed the delivery truck bringing her fish Friday night.
“I thought they were kidding when they notified us,” says Eberth, whose shop is in Normandie Center at Central and Woodlawn.
The delivery truck was coming from Denver. The incident happened just outside of Colby.
“Although the driver is OK, it totally destroyed the trailer,” Eberth says.
“What are the odds of that?” she asks. “You would never think out of, what, 1,500 semis rolling across I-70 that a random tornado would hit ours.”
It looks like the truck also had fish deliveries for area restaurants, too.
Eberth says that although she was floored, her customers handled it just fine.
“Everybody took it in really good spirits,” she says. “I had no complaints.”
