Yesterday, a tractor trailer carrying a bunch of Tombstone and Digiorno frozen pizzas smashed into an overpass in Mablevale, Arkansas. No one was injured in the crash, but the accident left an awfully big mess to clean up.

Local reporter Winnie Wright offered several crucial updates on the pizza spill situation throughout the afternoon, including this response to questions from Twitter:
For those asking. The pizzas have been run over and many have diesel fluid on them, so there won't be pizza for dinner for any of us.— Winnie Wright (@WinnieWrightTV) August 9, 2017
A team of tractor and truck operators arrived on the scene and quickly took care of the mess:
