Eels from overturned truck slime cars on United States highway

Eels from overturned truck slime cars on United States highway

A truck carrying 7,500 pounds of the slippery creatures created a slimy, stinky mess on Thursday when it overturned on an OR highway.

Oregon State Police posted a photo on Twitter after reaching the highway showing damaged cars covered by the gooey eels. The truck was carrying around 7,500 pounds of hagfish when it overturned on the highway. At this point, we're unaware. It doesn't smell good, trust me. When the weight of the truck shifted, one of the containers fell off the truck.

The other containers separated from the bed of the truck and spilled onto the highway and caused a chain reaction pushing four vehicles into each other. "Our brains couldn't process what was happening". The animals are actually hagfish, not eels, but are commonly known as "slime eels" or "snot snakes".

"They were writhing and slimy, and it was unbelievable, just unbelievable."
According to the cops, the people in the cars were badly hit by the container but suffered some minor injuries. The slime forms when mucous from the body mixes with water.

"It was ugly", he told KOIN 6.

Highway closed, covered in slime after eel truck rollover

Erina Butler, an eyewitness, described the scene as "liquid eel".

He said: "We were like, 'What is that?' And then you realise, 'The poor eels". She also checked to see if anyone was hurt. "It was insane", she said.

The incident happened Thursday afternoon on Highway 101 along the coast of OR, approximately 90 miles southwest of Portland.

- It's not uncommon for roads to be closed for fog, snow, floods, or fires.

Authorities urged drivers to avoid the area.
