Polish Highway Closed Due to Liquid Chocolate Truck Spill

11 May, 2018, 01:11 | Author: Greg Wolfe
  • Tons of liquid milk chocolate were spilled and blocked six lanes on a highway after a truck transporting it overturned near Slupca in western Poland on Wednesday

The crash occurred at 5:30 a.m. and sent liquid chocolate spilling onto a section of the A2 motorway between Warsaw and Pozan.

A tanker carrying liquid chocolate overturned on a highway, spilling all its contents onto the road, causing the closure of all four lanes.

The spillage covered six lanes, blocking traffic in both directions.

And cleaning up chocolate is a hard proposition, made all the more hard as time passes.

"The cooling chocolate is worse than snow", senior brigadier Bogdan Kowalski, from the nearby town of Slupca, said, according to Associated Press. The driver was hospitalized with a broken arm, but no one else was hurt.

"We have to remove the truck from the highway first", local police officer Marlena Kukawka told the newspaper. Roughly a dozen tons of chocolate were onboard at the time and authorities were forced to close the highway for hours to fix the mess.

Rescue officials used large amounts of hot water to clear the solidifying chocolate. Instead, they made a decision to spray warm water across the hardened chocolate to melt it and wash it away.
