Thruway drivers had a messy commute after hummus spill near Utica

New York News

GERMAN FLATTS, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Drivers using the Thruway toward Central New York Friday morning were forced to exit the interstate because of a tractor trailer crash just shy of Utica.

According to New York State Police, around 8:30 a.m., a tractor-trailer carrying food packages went partially off the road in the Town of German Flatts.

The truck was headed west, so Troopers report that all westbound traffic is being diverted off of the Thruway at the Little Falls (29A) exit.

The truck lost its contents, which appear to be individually packaged food products.

After people’s guesses on social media ranged from guacamole to apple sauce, a spokesperson for New York State Police confirm hummus containers are what spilled from the truck.
