An Arkansas highway served up more than traffic Thursday when two tractor-trailers collided and one of them spilled hundreds of bottles of whiskey, The Associated Press reported.

The mini-bottles of cinnamon flavored Fireball whiskey covered the asphalt after the collision on Interstate 40.

And it wasn’t the first time drinks have been served on the state’s roadways. According to the AP, trucks carrying bourbon, frozen pizzas, pasta sauce and gin have all spilled there in the past year.

Investigators were still looking into the cause of Thursday’s wreck, State Department of Transportation spokesman Danny Straessle said. The crash caused major delays in both directions on the highway.

At least one person was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, he told the AP.
