Massive chocolate spill closes highway in Poland

The accident occurred in the morning when there was little traffic and nobody else was hurt

The ruptured tank spewed a pool of rapidly-hardening chocolate from both ends, which quickly covered the width of the road.

Drivers were caught in the sticky mess after the tanker carrying 12 tons of the liquid goodness collided with a traffic barrier, overturned and spilt milk chocolate onto the road. Cleaning the cooling chocolate will require lots of hot water, and officials say the candy blob will be harder to clear than an oil spill.

Local police said it was unclear why the truck belonging to a sweet maker slammed into the central reservation on highway A2 between the western towns of Wrzesnia and Slupca.




A firefighter attending the scene told TVN24 that chocolate is a more unsafe hazard than snow on a road.

The vehicle lurched, the tank's contents spilled out onto the road, and the driver was hospitalized with a broken arm. "It will take a few hours or more", she said about the cleanup.
