Tractor-Trailer Crashes, Spills Tons Of Twizzlers Across Highway

twizzOvernight, south of Pittsburgh, a highway was transformed into the least fun candy land ever. Police say that fog may have caused the driver of a tractor-trailer to hit a barrier, splitting its trailer down the middle and spilling its contents on the highway. No, no, truck driver, it’s much too early for Easter.

The Twizzler spill occurred in a construction zone on Interstate 70, and it closed the highway for several hours overnight. There were reports of cases and packages of licorice scattered on the road, but the whole mess was cleaned up before the morning commute began.

Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the crash: the driver sustained minor injuries, and of course tons of Twizzlers were lost.
