The incident, which happened yesterday morning (October 25), occurred when a tractor-trailer carrying sea snails crashed on the I-95 highway, according to Bangor Daily News.
Local state trooper Kyle Willette stated: "It struck the built-up crossover and vaulted into the air a short distance before coming to rest on the other side of the crossover."
The truck driver, 51-year-old Arthur Wittneben from New York, was hurt in the crash, but his injuries are not said to be life-threatening.
As a result of the spillage, one lane was available for drivers to use from 10.30am to 5.30pm - a total of seven hours.
"Traffic was backed up to Exit 161 for about a mile during afternoon rush time around 5pm," added Willette.
