It's a pizzapocalypse after semi spills load on Arkansas highway

Frozen Pizzas Truck Wreck

No one thought a highway food accident would ever top the Anheuser-Busch-Frito-Lay snackcident.

An 18-wheeler crashed and spilled frozen pizzas on Interstate 30 in Little Rock on Wednesday, closing part of the freeway for nearly 4½ hours and causing traffic to back up about 10 miles.

There was no word on who missed out on pizza deliveries because of the accident.

Arkansas DoT spokesperson Danny Straessle jokingly reported "lots of pizza fatalities" following the incident.

The accident did cause traffic to back up nearly ten miles, and the freeway was closed for four-and-a-half hours as authorities cleaned up the mess. Wrote local reporter Winnie Wright, "The pizzas have been run over and many have diesel fluid on them, so there won't be pizza for dinner for any of us".

He said the agency hadn't decided by late Wednesday how to dispose of the no-longer-edible pizzas.

"There's pizza sauce, there's cheese - you name it, it's out here all over the interstate", he said.
