IDAHO FALLS, Idaho — Six barrels containing a pain-relieving lotion that broke open and spilled on an eastern Idaho highway after the driver of a pickup with a trailer swerved to avoid a collision have been cleaned up.

Idaho State Police Trooper Tony Anderson tells the Post Register (http://bit.ly/2r2SNSd) that nine 55-gallon (208-liter) barrels came fell off Wednesday after the driver swerved to miss an oncoming motorist on State Highway 31 and hit a bump.

Anderson says six barrels broke open and spilled the lotion produced by Worland, Wyoming,-based Amish Origins.

Steve Jenkins of the U.S. Forest Service says the lotion contains a chemical compound harmful to fish but none of the lotion spilled into nearby Pine Creek.

Jenkins says crews on Wednesday and Thursday cleaned up the lotion.
