Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

A STRETCH of In­ter­state 44 in Spring­field, Mis­souri, was closed for sev­eral hours at the week­end when a trac­tor-trailer crashed, spilling 20 tons ( 18 tonnes) of may­on­naise on to the road. Po­lice closed the east­bound lanes of the sec­tion of In­ter­state while crews worked to clean up the 40,000lbs ( 18,143kg) of may­on­naise that spilled af­ter the driver of the trac­tor-trailer lost con­trol and drove into the me­dian. Lt Scott Leven of the Spring­field Po­lice Depart­ment said walk­ing on the spilled may­on­naise was like walk­ing on ice, but no in­juries were re­ported.
