Both sides of the divided highway were covered with the sweet stuff following the crash, and passing vehicles left chocolate-covered tire marks for over a mile before authorities closed down the highway.

The liquid chocolate solidified as it cooled, making for a sticky mess, according to TVN24, and rescue workers will have to blast the road with hot water to clean it up.
