MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)-- A tanker truck from Illinois transporting a farm food product spilled its contents on a long stretch of County Highway S. in Green County Wednesday afternoon.

The Green County Highway Department tells NBC15 News that crews spent a significant amount of time cleaning up the spill with sweepers.

The Green County WI Sheriff's Office originally posted to social media saying that a "butter-like" substance spilled from a truck and created very hazardous driving conditions in spots.

As of 4 p.m., road conditions seemed to have returned to normal, authorities say.
