Truck spill creates a slippery mess

SHARE Truck spill creates a slippery mess

Officers were slipping and sliding as they patrolled traffic and cleaned up little silicone balls that spilled from a truck near 600 North between 400 and 800 West Saturday.

The balls contained silicone used to make reflective paint, said Salt Lake City Police Lt. Terry Morgan. They spilled from a Wasatch Construction truck, she said.

"It made the road hard to walk on," Morgan said.

Officers spent two hours at the scene.
