Northern Iowa authorities say they've cleaned up a slippery mess after a tipped semitrailer spilled Jell-O and pudding cups across a county road.
The Floyd County sheriff's office says 52 pallets of gelatin and pudding fell from the trailer when its top ripped open near Rudd early Tuesday. It took crews three hours to clean up the debris.
The sheriff's office says 39-year-old semitrailer driver Eric Young of Charleston, S.C., wasn't able to make a turn and went into the ditch where the rig rolled onto its side. Young and 32-year-old passenger Martin Brandon, of Bridgeport, Conn., suffered minor injuries.
The Globe-Gazette in Mason City Damage reports damage to the semitrailer is estimated at $50,000.
