Two 18-wheelers involved in a fiery crash spilled Fireball Cinnamon Whisky across an interstate in central Arkansas on Thursday morning.
UPDATE: unknown, non-life threatening injuries. Our crews are using this mechanical broom to clear the Interstate. The inside lane should open to traffic momentarily. #arnews #artraffic #CNAtraffic pic.twitter.com/TdRXqBv497— Arkansas DOT (@myARDOT) June 14, 2018

Pictures show the front of one of the 18-wheelers was completely destroyed.
Crews had to use a mechanical broom to sweep up the glass from the bottles.
No injures have been reported and the cause of this crash is under investigation.
It's not the first time a crash has left an Arkansas roadway covered in food or drinks, KATV reports.
A crash in August left a truckload of spaghetti sauce at U.S. 278 and Arkansas 24. Earlier that month, a tank car filled with bourbon crashed on I-40 in eastern Arkansas.
