VIDEO: Slimy Scene: truck carrying thousands of live eels overturns

Posted: Updated:

It was a sight no one wanted to see on an Oregon highway.

A truck carrying 7,500 pounds of live eels overturned. Containers went flying off the truck, which then caused a chain-reaction crash with other cars.

Cars ended up covered with eels, as well as, the gooey substance the creatures release when they're under stress.

The highway was shut down for hours. No one was injured.
