Meat mess causes traffic jam, smelly cars in NY

Updated: Saturday, July 12 2014, 03:25 PM EDT
QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) -- Some car owners are raising a stink after meat met motorists in an upstate New York town.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports Saturday on the continuing meat mystery in Queensbury, about 60 miles north of Albany. Dozens of chunks of meat cropped up on a road by a mall Thursday afternoon.

No one's sure where it came from. Police believe it fell off a truck that might have been heading from a farm or slaughterhouse to a rendering plant.

The state Department of Transportation cleaned it up, but drivers such as James Teele were still dealing with the aftermath Friday.

He immediately went to a car wash after driving through the mess. But he says his SUV still smells like rotting meat, and flies are swarming around it.
