The Oklahoma Department of Transportation said the tanker truck pulled over to the side of westbound Interstate 44 around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday when the tanker sprung a leak and started pouring syrup onto the road, the Oklahoman, Oklahoma City, reported Wednesday.
The right lane of the road was closed while ODOT crews dumped salt onto the syrup spill, which officials said stretched for miles, to soak up the sticky mess and make it easier to clean from the road.
All lanes of the road were reopened by 8 a.m. Wednesday, the Oklahoman said.
The cause of the leak was unclear Wednesday.
