MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot authorities say a large container of used motor oil fell off a truck and broke open, snarling traffic in the south part of the city.

KXMC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1TrVPa0 ) the broken container spread slippery oil at the intersection of 20th Avenue and South Broadway on Friday morning.

Fire officials and police blocked off the area surrounding the spill. But traffic that had already been through the spilled oil spread the slippery mess for several blocks, requiring a cleanup effort that took hours.
