FLAGSSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) Authorities in northern Arizona had a sweet hot mess on their hands after a tank truckers trailer detached from the truck and rolled on its side on slick pavement, spilling a river of liquid chocolate onto Interstate 40.
The wreck near Flagstaff required cleanup crews to pour most of the 40,000 gallons of chocolate into the highway median to lighten the damaged tanker so it could be towed away. The chocolate was liquid because it was being stored in the tanker at 120 degrees.
There were no injuries.
