SAVANNAH GUTHRIE, anchor: What a mess along the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. A tanker truck loaded with driveway sealant sprung a leak and coated part of the roadway with a thick tar over a 40-mile stretch of road. The stuff came out gooey and hot, and then quickly dried on the pavement. Crews had to use sand and snow plows to clean it up. Officials there say the driver of the truck will be cited for violations. About 150 cars were caught in that muck, significantly slowing the drive to grandma's house for the holiday.
