'Liquid sugar' wreaks havoc for over 15 miles on the highway

A tanker, hauling liquid sugar, leaked its load on about 15 miles of highway. The syrupy substance has damaged several vehicles and is proving to be difficult to clean off the cars. According to a February 27 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, the liquid sugar was leaked on I-44 during the morning rush hour in Oklahoma City.

The liquid sugar isn't just on the outside of the vehicles. One cab driver reported that the sticky substance is on the engine and underneath the car. He claims his cab now smells like “burnt marshmallows” because of the heat.

CEI Trucking is the trucking company responsible for the liquid sugar all over the highway. The load was headed to the Braum's Distribution Center in Tuttle.

The driver of the truck was not issued a citation. That was because the driver stopped on his own and wasn't involved in an accident. CEI Trucking has also offered to pay to have the vehicles washed.

The right lane of I-44 was shut down. The highway patrol brought in sand in an attempt to clean up the mess. At the time of publication, it was unknown if CEI Trucking would be responsible for paying for the clean up caused by one of their trucks.
