VIDEO: ‘Explosion’ of pizzas on major US motorway blocks traffic
ARKANSAS: A major US motorway in Arkansas was blocked following 18-wheel truck carrying the frozen pizzas slid and crashed on the thoroughfare.
The truck carrying the frozen pizzas was sliced open as it passed under a bridge on Wednesday, sending the meals tumbling into the road near Little Rock, Arkansas.
Around 1,000 of the pizza, which were DiGiorno and Tombstone brands, blocked the entire westbound carriageway of the major interstate road.
The road, part of a major link between Dallas and Memphis, was shut for four hours as recovery trucks were seen scooping up the pizza.
Even as the pizzas were collected up, the road appeared to be smeared with tomato and cheese.
A spokesman for the state’s Department of Transportation office, Danny Straessle, said the bridge only had “cosmetic damage”.
