A truck loaded with more than 22 tons of pizza dough and flour in Northern Arizona crashed, spilling the majority of its cargo onto U.S. 89, earlier this week.

According the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the semi-truck bounced off a guardrail before rolling onto its side and dumping its load on a stretch of highway known as Jack’s Peak. The rig was loaded down with 44,500 pounds of pizza dough and flour.

Police said speed and fatigue may have contributed to the crash. The driver was cited with failure to control the vehicle. No one was injured.
