FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (KNXV) -- A tanker full of liquid chocolate rolled over on I-40 Monday, causing it to spill out over the roadway.

The crash happened just before 9 a.m., according to the Arizona Department of Transportation, and all westbound lanes were blocked before reopening to traffic after 1 p.m.
