This could give new meaning to the term being stuck in traffic.
The Columbia Fire Department said a tanker carrying fruit drink overturned on Interstate 26 on Friday, blocking westbound traffic in some lanes.
State officials say between 800 and 1,000 gallons of grapefruit juice concentrate leaked into the median and the spill was not hazardous. It wasn't clear how long it would take to clean up the spill, but traffic was backed up for four miles.
Authorities were investigating what caused the tanker to overturn.
