Sticky SigAlert: 42,000 pounds of honey spill on 605 Freeway

<i>This post had been corrected. See note below for details.</i>

Without any help from Winnie-the-Pooh, Caltrans is making quick work of a honey spill on the 605 Freeway.

The California Highway Patrol reported that a truck carrying 42,000 pounds of honey overturned on the 605 Freeway near Valley Boulevard on Monday afternoon.

TV footage shows a pool of honey flowing from the truck onto the shoulder of the freeway.

Crews, however, made quick work of the honey. Originally, four lanes on the Northbound 605 were closed. But the CHP said three lanes have been reopened.

A story like this is bound to get some humorous comments. Here are some from Times readers and across Twitter:
Hive never seen a crash like this before.

I hope the driver wasn’t buzzed.

That’s how you get ants.

Unbeelievably sticky situation
