Traffic came to a standstill following a molasses spill in the vicinity of Orange Lane along the Old Harbour Road.

This happened when the tank laden with the commodity being transported by a truck, burst open on the busy thoroughfare.

The incident took place about 12 noon today causing traffic pileup at either end of the road for more than two hours while firefighters from Old Harbour and Spanish Town clean the area to prevent any accidents.

No one was injured, Sgt David Sheriff of the Old Harbour traffic department, told Old Harbour News, while the cause behind the burst tanker is yet to be established.
