The innards were left festooned on the back of the truck involved in the collision as other drivers eased their cars through the slop – leaving tire tracks behind. One man was taken to hospital after the crash on Monday afternoon near the intersection of the Mount Lindesay Highway and Camp Cable Road at Jimboomba It took more than two hours for a Queensland fire and emergency service crew to hose down the muck, a spokesperson said.

Authorities also used a front-end loader to scrape up innards and dump them into another truck.
Police said the incident reduced traffic to a single lane leading to some congestion. “Obviously it’s going to be pretty slippery,” a spokesperson said.
