Several cars covered in goo as Truck carrying 7,500lbs of slime eels flip and spilled onto Highway 101 near Otter Rock, Oregon

An Oregon highway looked like a scene out of a science-fiction film after a truck filled with eels overturned on Thursday, leaving a slippery film of goo in its wake.

Salvatore J. Tragale was unable to stop a truck filled with 13 containers of hagfish, or ‘slime eels’ when he approached traffic, which had backed up due to construction on Highway 101.

The containers spilled onto the road near Otter Rock, sparking a chain reaction that led to a five-car pileup, although no one was seriously hurt.
