A slick mess was created on Kissena Boulevard Saturday afternoon when a truck spilled oil on the Flushing roadway, according to authorities.

Fire officials and police responded to the spill near Franklin Avenue about 1 p.m., the FDNY said. The Sanitation Department then had to be called to clean up the oil.

The accident closed about a three-block stretch of Kissena Boulevard for at least an hour, according to officials.
