Dr Pepper truck spills load

PNT Staff Report

Diet or regular — Portales clean-up crews had plenty of choices Tuesday after a Dr Pepper truck dumped its load at Avenue A and First Street.

Police said a flatbed Dr Pepper truck was west bound on First Street when its load shifted while attempting a lane change.

The intersection was down to one lane in all directions, while clean up crews hosed off the sticky mess. The clean up took about 45 minutes.
