VIDEO: Chocolate truck overturns, making mess across six highway lanes

U.S. & World

GRABOSZEWO, Poland (WCMH) — A truck overturned on a Polish highway Wednesday, spilling tons of liquid chocolate that solidified into a huge sticky mess.

An overturned truck surrounded by brown chocolate covered six lanes on a major highway, blocking traffic in both directions. 

Rescue officials said the liquid chocolate was solidifying as it cooled and would require large amounts of hot water to clear away.

A fire official from the town in western Poland said the removal process was very difficult, adding that oil stains are easier and quicker to remove than smeared chocolate.

The driver of the chocolate truck was taken to the hospital with a broken arm.

The accident occurred in the morning when there was little traffic, and no one else was hurt.
