Liquid chocolate spills onto Polish highway

The truck, carrying a shipment of liquid chocolate, overturned on a highway in Poland, spreading six lanes with a sugary sludge.

It is not clear why the tanker overturned, police told local news network TVN24.

A cleaning crew armed with shovels, an excavator and hot water pressure washers have begun chipping away at the chocolate that turned rock solid in the open air.

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