Trucker fined over sticky Pa. turnpike goo

PITTSBURGH (AP) - December 2, 2011

A citation for failure to properly secure a load was filed Thursday against George Delaney before a Pennsylvania magistrate.

Officials say the Glen Burnie, Md., man was behind the wheel of a tanker truck that leaked sticky driveway sealant all over the eastbound lanes Nov. 22. Road crews had to plow the goop off the roadway and put down sand to dry it out.

At least 100 vehicles were disabled when the gooey muck coated their tires. More than 450 motorists reported damage.

Authorities say Delaney was responsible for the leaky valve. A phone number for him could not immediately be found.
