Ice cream spill freezes traffic in Indiana


FORT WAYNE, Ind. » Police say 40,000 pounds of ice cream have spilled from a semitrailer in the state of Indiana, closing two lanes of an interstate highway at the start of the holiday weekend.

The Journal Gazette and WPTA-TV report the spill happened about 4 p.m. local time Friday and was expected to take as long as six hours to clean up completely. One southbound lane remained open.

Police say the truck was trying to enter the interstate from a ramp when it tipped, spilling cartons of vanilla, caramel praline crunch and other flavors of Edy’s ice cream onto the interstate.

Police say the truck driver had minor injuries and was taken to a hospital to be checked out.
