Someone order some fries, quick! Better make it an extra large!
A tractor-trailer carrying more than 42,000 pounds of bottled Heinz ketchup crashed Thursday near Reno, spilling the red condiment all over a highway, Gawker.com reported.
After the driver swerved to avoid another vehicle on westbound Interstate 80 near the Robb Drive overpass, the truck's cargo container was torn open when the tractor-trailer hit a center divider and knocked over a light pole, sending thousands of ketchup bottles crashing onto the roadway, reported the Reno Gazette-Journal.
"I have red everywhere on the highway," Sgt. Janay Sherven with the Nevada Highway Patrol told the newspaper. "No bodies, no people, just ketchup."
So how do you clean up 42,000 pounds of ketchup? Sherven said crews had to pour sand on the mess then use snowplows to clear the area.
Talk about a sticky situation.
