Surely someone sees the humor of a bread truck and deli meat truck collision

A truck hauling hundreds of packs of deli meat collided with another tractor-trailer carrying bread on a New Jersey highway early Friday morning, reports NBC New York.

The crash caused a major pile-up of sandwich ingredients along Interstate 287's southbound lanes in Piscataway, N.J.

The trucks collided just before 6 a.m. causing major delays just ahead of Friday morning rush hour. Traffic jams reportedly stretched back for several miles.

Helicopter footage above the scene showed first responders working in the early morning hours to clean up the deli meat and bread from the roadway and surrounding grassy areas.

Most of the cleanup was completed by 7:30 a.m. and no injuries were reported from the scene.

It's been a tough month for food haulers. Last week, a truck carrying onions crashed on a highway in Southern California.
