Christmas-tree shipment dumped in Austrian garden

VIENNA

An early seasonal delivery went wrong in Austria when a truck was involved in a crash and dumped 14 tons of Christmas trees in a resident’s garden.

Police in Vorarlberg state, at Austria’s western tip, say the accident happened Friday night as a truck with a trailer loaded with trees drove through the town of Hohenems.

The trailer hit a wall, tipped over and landed in the garden of a house. A police statement Saturday said that the fire service dispatched 30 people to recover the hundreds of fir trees.

A passenger in the truck was injured and taken to a local hospital.

Restaurant settles over ‘carcass removal’ listing

HELENA, Mont.

A phone-book company has settled a lawsuit filed by a Montana barbecue restaurant that was listed in a section of the yellow pages for “Animal Carcass Removal.”

The owner of Bar 3 Bar-B-Q sued Dex Media Inc. after the listing appeared in the 2009 phone book and was reprinted in other directories in 2010 and last year. It gained notoriety after it was featured as a joke on Jay Leno’s show in 2011.

Hunter Lacey’s lawsuit claimed a Dex salesman deliberately published the free listing under the section after he refused to buy an advertisement in the book.

The terms of the Nov. 16 deal between Dex and the restaurant’s parent company were not disclosed. A tentative agreement proposed in September said it would include a payment to Lacey.
