Glue Spill Snarls Travel on I-15 Near Mesquite
Jun. 2, 2004
(Mesquite, Nevada-AP) -- There's a sticky situation this morning on Interstate 15 near Mesquite, Nevada near the Utah border.

Authorities say a truck driver fell asleep and crashed his rig, spilling a load of carpet glue onto the roadway around 3 a-m.

The driver's not hurt too badly. But cleanup at the scene about 90 miles northeast of Las Vegas is going to be a problem.

Reports are that there's about three inches of glue on the road -- the main route from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City.

Motorists are being advised to use State Highway 170 to get around the area.
