The accident, involving a motorcycle, two trucks and five cars, closed part of a two-lane highway for five hours early on Saturday in Hyogo prefecture.

‘‘What probably happened is that cars travelling behind the truck squashed the bottles of mayonnaise, spreading it on the road,’’ a police spokesman said.

The sauce’s ingredients of eggs, vinegar and oil mean it is more slick and dangerous than snow, he said. Police were searching for the truck driver, he added. AFP
