OKLAHOMA CITY -

A tanker truck spill Wednesday morning left many questions, and a popular local restaurant chain perhaps passing the buck. 

A semi-tractor trailer leaked a liquid sugar compound along at least 15 miles of Westbound I-44, before the driver figured out what was going on and called the OHP. A spokesperson for Braum's says the truck was on its way to the Braum's distribution center in Tuttle.

Gay says a few hours after he got to work, after the compound had dried all over his truck, it was quite a mess. News 9 went and checked his truck out, and yes, it is quite a mess.

"How am I going to get it off without tearing off the paint?" He asked. 

The Braum's spokesperson says when the tanker truck got to the distribution center, Braum's refused to accept the remaining load of liquid sugar. Because of that, she says they don't know the name of the trucking company responsible.   

The OHP says because the driver pulled over on his own, and was not involved in an accident, he was not ticketed. OHP deferred questions about the name of the trucking company to Braum's.
