Crews in Louisiana are still working to clean up the mess that was left when an 18-wheeler carrying corn dogs bound for California overturned on the section of I-220 that connects to LA 3132.

During the crash outside Shreveport, more than half of the 76,800 corn dogs on the truck ended up on the side of the road.

According to police, the crash happened around 3:40 a.m. Tuesday when the driver flipped the 18-wheeler and hit a guard rail.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Luckily the only injuries were those sustained by the Foster Farms corn dogs.

It’s unclear if the driver was carrying Mini Honey Crunchy Corn Dogs, Jumbo Honey Crunchy Corn Dogs, Chili Cheese Corn Dogs or Honey Crunchy Corn Dogs.

According to Foster Farms’ website: “Easy to heat and eat, Foster Farms Corn Dogs are fun-tastic anytime! Plump and juicy hot dogs dipped in honey crunchy batter, they make a great snack or delicious meal the whole family can enjoy.”
