JASPER COUNTY, MO– 29 thousand pounds of frozen food is thrown across Interstate 49 this evening.

A semi truck, the only involved vehicle, for some reason flipped over spilling that food.

The Missouri State Highway patrol says they’ve got one lane open on the Interstate and they hope to have it completely open soon.

The accident took out both guard rails–they’re not sure what caused the accident.
