Part of a highway in the Finger Lakes region was closed for five hours Thursday evening after a tanker truck crashed and spilled 45,000 pounds of liquid chocolate.

State Police said there were no serious injuries in the crash, which occurred shortly after 5 p.m. in the northbound lanes of Interstate 390 in Livingston County, south of Rochester.

Troopers said the truck driver swerved to avoid a deer. The truck rolled over and the tanker split, spilling its load of chocolate. A road grader had to be brought in to scrape up the chocolate.

The truck was from M&M Mars in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.

The driver wasn't hurt.
