FRANKLIN, Ind. (WISH) — State police were called to the scene of a “sticky mess” along Interstate-65 near Franklin Thursday afternoon.
According to Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine, a semi that was traveling northbound on I-65 began leaking molasses from its trailer near mile marker 90 some time before 2:30 p.m. That’s near Franklin, south of Indianapolis.
The sticky substance could be seen leaking onto the ramp.
“Good news, well it’s a slow leak,” Sgt. Perrine said on Twitter. “Bad news, it’s a sticky mess and will take a while to clean up.”
Photos of the sticky scene were posted online.
It is unclear how long it will take authorities to clean the mess up.
