PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

Cookies anyone? 

A delivery truck lost its load of dough Tuesday morning in Pender County. 

Emergency officials said the truck was stopped at a light at the intersection of Highway 17 and Sidbury Road. When the light turned green, the truck accelerated and that's when the door on the back opened and about 20 big rolling carts of dough started falling out. 

No one was hurt in the dough accident, but drivers heading south on Highway 17 through Scotts Hill should expect delays while crews work to clear the road. Pender County officials brought inmates to help clean up the mess.
