Soda Spill Stops Traffic On Capital Boulevard

Posted June 7, 2001 11:53 a.m. EDT

— A big serving of "The Real Thing" ended up on Capital Boulevard Thursday morning, causing anything but smiles.

Coke made life difficult for drivers a mile north of the beltline around 11 a.m.

A truck driver apparently left a door open on the Coke delivery truck and several cases of the soft drink spilled out onto the road.

It took police and their helpers about 40 minutes to clean up the fizzy mess.
