Dog food spills from truck, closes...

HAMBURG, Pa. - Calling all canines: Cleanup on Route 61.

Well, that's not exactly how it went down, but it very well may have worked.

A tractor trailer hauling dog food was heading south on Route 61 in Hamburg around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, when it was cut off by another vehicle, police said.

We're told the truck driver hit the brakes, causing dog food to spill onto a quarter-mile stretch of the highway.

Crews worked about two hours to clean up the mess.

No one was injured.
