SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A pool of spilled cooking oil on the Savannah riverfront has snarled tour buses and delivery trucks trying to reach the downtown promenade that’s popular with tourists.

Savannah-Chatham County police said in a news release that a hose snapped Friday on a truck collecting used cooking oil, causing a slippery mess on River Street. The area is home to many restaurants, bars and souvenir shops along the Savannah River.

Police closed the riverfront to vehicles for several blocks and had officers on the scene to make sure pedestrians steered clear. Cleanup of the spill was expected to take several hours.
