    In this Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, photo provided by the Camden News, broken jars of spaghetti sauce litter a road near Camden, Ark. The crash marked the third time this month that edible goods were left on an Arkansas highway. A tanker spilled bourbon on Interstate 40 in eastern Arkansas on Aug. 2, and on Aug. 9 a truck split open on Interstate 30 in Little Rock, spilling frozen pizza.

    It's a smorgasbord on Arkansas highways, with the third food spill in as many weeks.

    A truck driver distracted by a GPS unit crashed near the intersection of U.S. 278 and Arkansas 24 at Camden early Monday and spilled a truckload of spaghetti sauce.

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

    Camden police Sgt. Cory Sanders said the spaghetti sauce truck was headed to Dallas about 3 a.m. when its driver became distracted, then overcorrected and rolled over after crossing the center line of the highway.

    Sanders said the driver suffered minor injuries.

    On Aug. 2, a tank car filled with bourbon crashed on Interstate 40 in eastern Arkansas and motorists on Interstate 30 had to leave the highway at Little Rock on Aug. 9 after a truck accident left frozen pizzas scattered about.
