Drivers in western Sweden were stuck in a jam after a van shed its load of preserves and juices which led to major traffic problems. The sticky situation occurred on the E45 outside Sunne at around midday on Tuesday. A police spokesperson said the delivery van had got into difficulty and started to shed all manner of different items.
"There was a lot of jam and juices which went down the drain," Tommy
Lindh, spokesperson for the Värmland police said.
The drama unfolded when the door of the delivery van opened and a
pallet, loaded with breakfast favourites, was thrown out onto the road.
firefighters ensured that the traffic backlog could be unstuck.
Firefighter Fredrik Persson, from Sunne emergency services said:
"It's a mixed compote, common pancake jam. We have a stretch of 70 - 100
metres that is just full of jam."
Nobody was hurt in the incident with drivers urged to take an
alternative route while the clean-up continued. Traffic got back
underway at 2pm
