If you have seen Deadpool, you would have seen him spilling blood and guts all over the freeway but now it's his turn to be splattered over the asphalt.

In Ohio, a truck carrying a shipment of comics from Diamond Comic Distributors was broken down on the side of the road in the early hours of the morning, the driver sleeping in the cab while waiting for assistance, when another truck crashed into the back of it, ripping open the side and spilling the cargo out onto the highway.

The driver has been taken to the hospital. No further details have been released about his condition.

Diamond send the following email to the customers affected by the accident.

Dear Diamond Customer:
As you may be aware, a truck carrying Diamond product from the Plattsburgh Distribution Center to the Olive Branch Distribution Center was involved in a serious accident that will delay some customer shipments of product on sale February 24. The driver was unhurt.
Affected customers have been notified of the delay via a separate email.
If you have not received that email, your shipment should arrive as scheduled.
If you have additional questions regarding this advisory, please contact your Diamond Retailer Services Representative. Thank you.

A week earlier and most of us might have thought this was a marketing stunt.

Fingers crossed for a full recovery for the driver.
