CHICAGO, July 7 (UPI) -- Police said 9,000 pounds of Chinese food was spilled onto a Chicago-area tollway Tuesday in a crash involving a box truck and a passenger vehicle.

Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Robert Fierstein said neither driver was seriously injured in the crash, which occurred at about 6:35 a.m. CDT on Interstate 294 near 95th St, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday.

Fierstein said the type of Chinese food involved was unclear. Traffic was closed in two of four lanes and backed up for four miles while crews worked to clear the road.
