A fiery crash involving two eighteen wheelers forced Arkansas transportation officials to shut down I-40 this morning and left the interstate covered in bottles of Fireball cinnamon-flavored whisky.
The crash happened before 11 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-40 in Pulaski County, according to KATV. Two trucks collided on the interstate, causing one of the trucks to catch fire. Images shared by the Arkansas Department of Transportation (DOT) show that the highway is littered with bottles of Fireball that spilled during the crash. It isn’t clear at this time whether anyone was hurt. I-40 westbound is closed for the crash and is expected to remain shutdown for hours. The Arkansas DOT tweeted out “Looks like we’ll be working this for a while.”
