Soda spills, freezes on road when rigs crash

Traffic had to be detoured

Everyone knows soda can be bad for your teeth. Sometimes, it can apparently threaten the morning commute, too.
 
Police say two tractor-trailers collided on U.S. Route 422 outside Reading, Pa., around 12:40 a.m. Tuesday. The Reading Eagle reports one of the trucks was carrying 2-liter bottles of soda.
 
Hundreds of gallons of sugary drink spilled onto the highway and froze in the frigid early morning temperatures. Those slick conditions from the crash ended up shutting down the roadway in Exeter Township for more than five hours.
 
Traffic was detoured until the road reopened shortly after 6 a.m.
