Truck spills hundreds of frozen pizzas, shuts down highway

New York (1010 WINS) -- A nightmare for pizza lovers everywhere.

An 18-wheeler headed west bound on I30 outside of Little rock Arkansas experienced a crash resulting in Frozen pizzas being littered all over the highway.

The amount of pizza was so large that the Arkansas Department of Transportation had to bring in a tractor to help clean up the highway. Most of the pizzas were Tombstone and Digiorno.

The highway was briefly shut down, though traffic was able to pass using the shoulder during part of the cleanup.

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the crash occurred when the truck hit the Mabelvale Pike overpass, which tore the tractor's trailer to shreds, spilling the pizzas and diesel fuel all over the highway in the process.

The Arkansas Department of Transportation confirmed there were no injuries, but clean-up took several hours in all.

"We need more dough FOR highways, not ON highways!" the department joked. Damage to the bridge is said to be only "cosmetic."
