Authorities say a crash on the Ohio Turnpike spilled hundreds of boxes of breakfast cereal.

It is uknown at this time what kind on cereal it was but I'm guessing Grape Nuts. It is the worst tasting and most boring of the cereals and probably put those drivers to sleep! If they were snacking on say sugar infused Cap'n Crunch, I'm sure the accident wouldn't of happened.

The accident in the Toledo area shut down the toll highway's eastbound traffic for nearly three hours early Wednesday. Bulldozers cleared away the mess.

State troopers tell WTVG-TV the driver of the tractor-trailer hauling the cereal may have fallen asleep at the wheel before his truck hit a guardrail around 2 a.m. and wound up on its side across both eastbound lanes. A tow truck then slammed into the semi.

The semi driver was taken to a Toledo hospital with injuries that were not life threatening. The tow truck operator declined treatment for cuts and bruises.

An Ohio highway patrol dispatcher told The Associated Press she didn't know the type of cereal involved.
