Oreo Cookies Spilled on Highway Cause Major Delays

Police say a trailer loaded with 14 tons of double-stuffed Oreos overturned, spilling the cookies still in their plastic sleeves into the median and roadway. The truck’s driver was traveling from Chicago to Morris on Interstate 80 around 4 a.m, according to Illinois State Police Sgt. Brian Mahoney, when he fell asleep and hit the median.

“The boxes came out of the trailer and boxes were ripped open,” he said.

The crash about 50 miles southwest of Chicago remains under investigation.

No charges have been filed but both lanes of traffic remain closed while authorities remove the cookies.
