A collision between two trucks on a highway in Arkansas, USA, left a stretch of the road covered in hundreds of miniature whiskey bottles. According to the Arkansas Department of Transportation, the incident took place at 10.45 am on Thursday morning. In the aftermath of the crash, hundreds of miniature bottles of Fireball whiskey were seen scattered over the highway.
"Looks like we'll be working this for a while," the department wrote while sharing two pictures of the crash site:

The transportation department later wrote to say that one person was treated for non-life threatening injuries after the accident. A mechanical broom was used to clear the interstate highway of the cinnamon-flavoured alcohol.
