Highway littered with frozen pizzas after crash


I-30 was littered with frozen pizzas Wednesday afternoon after a tractor trailer carrying the food items crashed.

The truck was reportedly traveling west and hit the center support column of a bridge.

"But there's a lot of frozen pizzas laying out on the interstate right now", Arkansas Department of Transportation Department spokesman Danny Straessle told the paper.

"Fortunately it did not turn into a horrendous disaster", Straessle said. "Except for the loss of the pizza, I guess".

Arkansas highway officials had to shut down the westbound lanes of a cross-country interstate to pick up frozen pizza for four hours. Sadler said an investigation into the crash is ongoing.

All lanes of traffic were reopened by 5:30 p.m., more than four hours after the crash. Front-loading tractors were used to scoop the pizzas off the road and into dump trucks.

The mess of sauce, cheese, and pepperoni made for a lengthy clean-up process.

Photos and video from the incident show run-over pizzas all over the interstate. "Lots of pizza fatalities".
