Twizzler Truck Crash Spills Licorice All Over I-70
If you were traveling on I-70 south of Pittsburgh late last night, you may have gotten to enjoy some free Twizzlers. That’s because a tractor trailer carrying the red licorice confection swerved and hit a barrier on I-70 at 11:30 pm Wednesday evening, spilling licorice all over the interstate.
The crash occurred in a construction zone between Fayette City and Arnold City, forcing the highway to be closed for several hours while crews cleaned up the inconvenient yet delicious mess.

Foggy conditions were likely the cause of the accident. Fortunately, no one, including the truck driver, sustained serious injuries as a result.
In light of the recent theft of a Hungry Howie’s Pizza truck carrying $85,000 in mozzarella cheese, it seems that right now is a dangerous time to be hauling junk food. No word on how much money the Twizzlers were worth, but if a trailer full of cheap shredded cheese can fetch 85 grand, then surely a big shipment of America’s favorite strawberry strands must be worth quite a bit.
