Texas Highway Coated by 5000 Gallons Of Molasses


Drivers heading to Sugar Land, Texas were rerouted Thursday after the afternoon accident in which an overturned tanker truck pouring 5,000 gallons of molasses onto a major Texas highway shut down Texas 6 at Southwest Freeway for eight hours.

City of Sugar Land spokeswoman Pat Pollicoff made a statement that the road was closed until midnight Thursday because of the coating of “healthy, all natural molasses.” The spilled molasses was intended for use in cattle food.

The 26-year-old driver of the truck, Joe Albert Loya, was taken to a hospital with minor head injuries.
