Fireball whisky covers Arkansas highway after crash involving two 18-wheelers

Posted: Updated:

ARKANSAS (KARE11) - The Arkansas Department of Transportation is working to clean up a shipment of Fireball whisky after two 18-wheelers were involved in a crash on Interstate 40.

The crashed happened right before noon on Thursday, between Galloway and Kerr in Pulaski County.

The department tweeted out that they would be "working this for a while" with a picture of the Fireball whisky scattered across the roadway.

 

Danny Straessle with the transportation department said one of the truck's cab caught fire during the crash.

Arkansas State Police say the injuries sustained by those involved are not life threatening.

This isn't the first time Arkansas roadways have been jammed up by food or drinks. In August 2017, frozen pizzas stopped traffic on I-30 and then spaghetti sauce stopped traffic in Camden.

    Authorities called in a mobile DNA lab and anthropologists to help identify the dead as the search went on for victims of the most destructive wildfire in California history. The overall death toll from the outbreak of fires at both ends of the state stood at 25 Sunday and appeared likely to rise.
