Months after 40,000 pounds of ham spilled off a Georgia onramp, a semi crash scattered thousands of corn dogs across an interstate. According to local news station KTBS , a tractor trailer hauling a load full of packaged corn dogs overturned on I-220 outside of Shreveport, La., Tuesday morning, spilling 75,000 sticks of the fried snack across the highway. There were no injuries, but the mounds of spilled dogs caused nine hours of delays while police cleaned up the delicious debris. The crash was apparently a big hit with the locals, many of whom scooped up the free snacks fate had tossed into their laps. “It’s a big mess, but a lot of folks will be eating pretty good this afternoon,” Corporal Marcus Hines of the Shreveport police told WWLTV . After providing the community with such a bounty, the driver of the truck will not face charges. Follow PEOPLE on Facebook!

A Two Semi-Truck Accident Sends One Truck into the Water
After the impact, the bus careened down an embankment and overturned into a stand of buckeye trees. No students were onboard when the crash occurred, because the driver had just dropped them off at Calaveras High School. After the incident, bus driver Siobhan Fischer, 48, of Mokelumne Hill, was trapped hanging in her seatbelt and unable to free herself from the bus, which was lying on its right side. An unknown Good Samaritan made his way down the steep embankment, entered the bus through an emergency door in the roof and helped Fischer get loose. The pair exited through the rear of the bus and Fischer was taken to Mark Twain Medical Center in San Andreas to be treated for minor injuries. At 8:28 a.m. Fischer was driving her bus westbound and her bus was completely in her lane, according to Officer Rebecca Myers with the CHP. Tanker truck driver Timothy Lupkes, 55, was driving his truck eastbound. A video from the school bus shows Lupkes allowed his eastbound truck to travel well across the double yellow lines into Fischers westbound lane, Myers said. This caused the truck to sideswipe the school bus. The two large vehicles scraped against each other for their entire lengths, leaving a wake of broken mirrors, dented metal and debris along the highway. The impact sent Fischers bus over a steep embankment, and Lupkes pulled his truck over at his first opportunity and cooperated with investigators, Myers said.
