Austin American-Statesman - - MORE OF TODAY’S TOP NEWS -

Arkansas high­way of­fi­cials shut down west­bound lanes of a cross-coun­try in­ter­state for four hours so crews could pick up pizza.

An 18-wheeler con­tain­ing DiGiorno and Tomb­stone frozen piz­zas scraped a bridge sup­port and sliced open its trailer Wed­nes­day, spilling them across In­ter­state 30 in front of the Arkansas Depart­ment of Trans­porta-

tion of­fice. Agency spokes- man Danny Straessle said the bridge had only cos­metic dam­age.

I-30 was closed for a time in both di­rec­tions while crews picked up the DiGiorno and Tomb­stone brand pies. The high­way, which goes around the south side of Lit­tle Rock, is part of a ma­jor link that con­nects Dal­las and points west to Mem­phis, Tenn., and points north and east.

There was no word on who missed out on pizza de­liv­er­ies be­cause of the ac­ci­dent.
