MORRIS, Ill. (AP) -- You'd need a lot of milk to dunk all the
cookies that spilled on an interstate highway in Illinois this
morning.

A trailer loaded with 14 tons of double-stuffed Oreos
overturned, dumping boxes of cookies all over the road and the
median about 50 miles southwest of Chicago.

It shut down the highway and backed up traffic.

Illinois State Police say the truck crashed after the driver
fell asleep at the wheel.
