LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The Arkansas Department of Transportation said a tractor-trailer crashed Wednesday afternoon, spilling frozen pizzas onto Interstate 30 in Little Rock, blocking all westbound traffic and closing all but one eastbound lane.

The accident occurred around 1 p.m. on the westbound highway about 1 mile east of Interstate 430.

The truck reportedly hit the Mabelvale Road overpass.

ArDOT said on Twitter that no one was hurt in the crash but that clearing the scene will "take time."

The agency said the overpass in the area sustained only "superficial" damage.

Interstate 30 is a major trucking corridor between Texas and the rest of the nation.

It connects with Interstate 40 in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
