Authorities say a truck carrying 18 tons of treated human waste has crashed in Fort Mill as the driver tried to get off of Interstate 77.
The driver of that truck was speeding, according to South Carolina State Troopers.
The accident happened around 10:25 a.m. on the exit ramp from I-77 southbound onto exit 90, Carowinds Boulevard.
Troopers say the driver, Jack Stalley, was traveling too fast as he got off the interstate and his truck flipped.
Processed human wasted spilled from the truck across the roadway. Officials called in heavy equipment to scoop the waste into another truck.
Emergency responders said the sludge came from a Charlotte municipal treatment plant and has been treated enough to not be hazardous.
Authorities say the trucker was taking the waste to a Columbia landfill when he lost control.
The road was shut down while crews cleaned the mess.
No one was injured in the wreck, but Stalley was ticketed for excessive speed.
