Dish soap coats turnpike after crash

It was a slippery situation on the Pennsylvania Turnpike Tuesday morning. But it wasn’t caused by the usual Keystone State snow and ice. It was because of a crash involving a tractor-trailer carrying jugs of dish soap.

A car collided with the truck at milepost 317, Turnpike spokesperson Carol DeFebo told WCAU.

The truck then hit a bridge, WPVI reported.

The soap spilled all over the highway, forcing drivers to be detoured around the mess.

Officials categorized the shutdown as an "extended closure," WGAL reported.
