A sticky situation: 12 tons of liquid chocolate spills onto Polish highway

That's what a town in Poland experienced Wednesday when a truck carrying 12 tons of liquid milk chocolate hit a barrier and tipped over.

The accident happened the morning of May 9th on the A2 motorway in Slupca, Poland.

The driver suffered a broken arm and was later taken to hospital.

Officials say that the chocolate began to cool and harden nearly immediately, making cleanup a hard task.

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


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

"It will take a few hours or more", the senior brigadier shared.

Videos and photos shared to social media show the chaos at the scene - not only revealing a river of murky brown liquid chocolate all over the road, but also queues of traffic tailing back along the highway.

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

The driver, reportedly aged in his 60s, is being treated for minor injuries.
