Not so sweet: Tanker truck crash spills liquid chocolate onto highway

The chocolate covered six lanes blocking traffic in both directions

A truck crash in Poland has left a highway covered in 12 tonnes of liquid chocolate, blocking traffic in both directions and creating headaches for clean-up crews.

The driver was admitted to hospital with a broken arm.

A representative for the firefighters told local news source TVN24 that scraping up the bittersweet barricade was worse than dealing with snow, a bold statement coming from chilly Poland. "It will take a few hours or more", she said about the cleanup.

The driver, reportedly aged in his 60s, is being treated for minor injuries. However, it was unclear where the lorry was headed.


The overturned truck was surrounded by brown chocolate covering six lanes.

Kukawka added that the stretch of highway rarely sees road accidents, and that the unfortunate chocolate spillage was definitely a first.

Rescue officials said the liquid chocolate was solidifying as it cooled and would require large amounts of hot water to clear away.

Even though no one was hurt in the accident, our heart is still breaking for the loss of this delicious dessert. This is a sad day for chocolate lovers, for sure.
