A truck crash spilled frozen pizzas onto Interstate 30 in Little Rock, stalling traffic for miles in each direction.

The crash happened around 1 p.m. on the westbound highway about a mile east of Interstate 430. The truck reportedly hit the Mabelvale Pike overpass, tearing apart the vehicle's trailer and spilling diesel fuel and its load.

No one was hurt.

"But there's a lot of frozen pizzas laying out on the interstate right now," Arkansas Department of Transportation Department spokesman Danny Straessle said from the scene. "Lots of pizza fatalities."

The highway department said in a Tweet that clearing the scene will "take time." All lanes were reported open by the agency by 5:30 p.m., more than four hours after the wreck.

Straessle said the overpass in the area sustained only "superficial" damage and Mabelvale Pike was not closed.

I wonder how many people are illegally walking on to the interstate looking for free pizza.

Even one ArDOT tweet got in a pun about Tombstones. (Though to be fair, I also saw some DiGiorno in there.)

It looks like a thin-crust or flat-bread variety of pizza.
