Call it a sticky situation.

A truck carrying 40,000 pounds of candy overturned on southbound Interstate 270 near Germantown, Md., early Friday, causing miles-long delays.

The crash occurred about 1 a.m. near Route 118, also known as Germantown Road. The tractor-trailer driver had been trapped but was safely rescued and suffered minor injuries, according to Pete Piringer, a spokesman for Montgomery County Fire.

Piringer said candy on the truck included Hershey’s chocolate and Kit Kat candy bars. Officials said hazmat crews cleared about 80 gallons of diesel fuel that spilled.

An investigation found the truck collided with a police cruiser that was helping with another incident before it overturned. The officers weren’t injured.
