While hot dogs are often a part of Memorial Day celebrations, authorities in Pennsylvania received more than they could handle when a tractor-trailer accident caused 15,000 pounds of hot dog filler to spill onto Interstate 70.

The spill occurred in Westmoreland County when the driver of a big rig, who police say was exceeding the speed limit, lost control of his vehicle, skidded off the roadway and crashed into a group of trees, according to Pennsylvania State Police. The impact caused the tractor-trailer to dump its entire load of hot dog filler onto the interstate, police say.

It took crews several hours to remove the filler from the roadway, a police spokesman says. Announcing that the road had been reopened, police issued a statement that reads, "The roadway was then cleared of all hot dog debris."
