DEPOE BAY, Ore. (WTNH) – A truck carrying 7,500 pounds of slime eels overturned in Oregon Thursday afternoon.
The slimy animals, known as hagfish, spread all over Highway 101, creating a big mess.
Troopers say a transportation worker told the driver to stop, but he didn’t. The weight of the eels shifted, causing the container to fly across the highway and burst open. That then caused a crash which left cars and the road covered in eels and lots of white, sticky slime.
