Some unlucky motorists in Washington state wound up stuck in a rather  sticky situation when a truck carrying tons of 'slime eels' spilled its  contents all over the highway and their cars!

The bizarre incident occurred on Thursday afternoon when the driver of  the truck narrowly avoided hitting a construction crew, but, in doing  so, caused a chaotic chain reaction.

By avoiding the accident, the truck was jostled enough that the tanks containing the creatures tipped over and started spilling.

In total, a whopping 13 containers were upended, sending an astounding  7,500 pounds of hagfish, or 'slime eels,' out onto the road as well as  unfortunate cars that were too close to the scene.
