A truck leaked poultry fat along 20 miles of Route 13 on Tuesday, causing at least four crashes and making a stinky mess.
The state police said that a truck hauling waste poultry grease from a Perdue Farms plant left open a valve and that the fat had leaked from the plant, on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, to the Maryland state line.
At least four crashes were reported, said Sgt. Joe Bunting. One person was taken to a hospital.
Sergeant Bunting described the grease as a â€œglassy filmâ€ and said crews sanded the road. He added that the gunk stuck to tires and spread to secondary roads, causing a â€œreally funkyâ€ odor.
