    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Dozens of gallons of white, sticky paint were accidentally dumped along a busy south Charlotte road during morning rush hour Thursday.

    The paint fell from a delivery truck and caused traffic headaches for hours as motorists tried to avoid the spill.

    All lanes of Park Road were reopened before noon.
