(WWJ) It was a sticky situation along I-94 in Indiana after a semi truck overturned overnight.

Crews spent about 2 1/2 hours cleaning up around 44,000 lbs. of Nutella that spilled onto the freeway, according to Indiana State Police.

In a news release, police said the trucker -- who was hauling the hazelnut cocoa spread in a box trailer -- told investigators a driver in front of him suddenly slammed on the breaks, causing the semi to lose control and tip over.

Along with the Nutella, the semi also lost about 150 gallons of diesel fuel, police said.  

No one was injured.
