Troopers say 52-year-old Billie Setser , of Carrollton, Ohio, was eastbound on I-70 near Washington, Pa., when he lost control of the rig about 2 p.m. Thursday. The truck went off the road, hit an embankment, rolled onto its side and slid, blocking both eastbound lanes.
Crews collected several hundred gallons of corn syrup in metal drums, as PennDOT workers put down anti-skid material to soak up what was left.
Eastbound traffic backed up about 13 miles. Interstate 79, which has an interchange near the site, had southbound traffic back up eight miles.
The driver was hurt, but police didn't release details.
