A tractor-trailer crash in upstate New York has sent 18 tons of Greek yogurt spilling alongside a highway.

WBNG-TV reports that a truck hauling 36,000 pounds of Chobani yogurt was traveling west on Interstate 88 when it crashed on a curve and overturned late Monday night in the Broome County town of Chenango, just north of Binghamton.

The station reports that the yogurt spilled on the highway's shoulder and down a hillside. The sheriff's office says crews are still cleaning up the crash scene Tuesday morning.

The 24-year-old Nebraska man who was driving the truck wasn't seriously injured. He was ticketed for failure to reduce speed and improper lane use.

The westbound lanes of I-88 were closed for a time after the crash.
