A tractor trailer carrying Hungry Jack pancake syrup struck a highway median along Buttermilk Pike, Kentucky, causing the truckload of syrup to spill all over the highway.
“Every lane of southbound I-75 was covered in pancake syrup,” said Fort Mitchell Police Officer Mark Spanyer. “It was a royal pain in the butt.”
The truck dumped hundreds of boxes of Hungry Jack syrup bottles all over the highway.
Thankfully, no one was injured in the crash. Spanyer said the incident occurred on Thursday when the driver maneuvered to avoid a car on the highway that had a blown-out tire. While the driver was able to avoid the car, he then crashed into a median on the Buttermilk Pike overpass.
Cleanup crews were forced to use sand to clean up the mess.
