A truck driver found himself in a sticky situation in Keene, New Hampshire when his truck slowly leaked dozens of gallons of maple syrup onto the highway yesterday afternoon.
Authorities that the sticky leak was caused when the truck’s 220-gallon load shifted. The driver, who chose to remain unidentified, was traveling between Alstead and Marlborough when New Hampshire DOT officials driving behind the truck flagged him down to let him know about the leak.
Firefighters were called in to clean up the 75 gallons of leaked maple syrup using tarps and sand. The two eastbound lanes of Route 101 were reduced to one lane while the firefighters worked to clean up the sticky mess.
