Didnt this happen in CHiPs? or Dukes of Hazard? Or Knight Rider? Or the A-Team? :roll:

A bizarre and potentially tragic incident of mayonnaise bottles spilled on a highway in western Japan led to a series of vehicle accidents just after midnighton September 25th.
According to Japanese news reports, boxes containing dozens of 500 gram bottles of mayonnaise were scattered over a 300 meter stretch of a two-lane bypass highway in Hyogo prefecture. Since mayonnaise is generally produced from a combination of eggs, vegetable oil, and vinegar, the spilled products essentially created a large oil slick on the roadway. Eight vehicles, starting with a motorcycle, and followed by several cars and trucks, crashed after skidding out in the mess.
Three people, including the motorcyclist, were reported to have sustained light injuries, and a 3.5 kilometer stretch of the highway between two exits was blocked off for nearly five hours while the accidents and mayonnaise were cleaned up.
Local police believe the mayonnaise boxes likely fell out of a delivery truck, which went unnoticed by the vehicle’s driver. While no suspect in the cause of the spill has been found, police are investigating based on the mayonnaise manufacturing information. Charges for failure to properly prevent fallen items could be dealt.
