ANNA, TEXAS -- A semi carrying candy fell on its side on Highway 75 in Anna today, backing up traffic for nearly 10 hours.

Police say the semi was carrying 42,000 pounds of Hershey's chocolate.

Officers say the driver of the 18-wheeler fell asleep at the wheel, then over-corrected when he woke up, flipping the truck.

The accident happened near Mantua Road around 5 this morning.

Police say no one was injured.

Responders had to unload most of the candy onto the highway to get the semi back up on its wheels.
