Ramen Noodle Truck Crashes on I-95 in North Carolina, Shutting Down Several Lanes of Traffic

No one was injured in the ramen noodle truck crash

Packets of instant noodles “were scattered all along the highway,” according to ABC 7.

A tractor-trailer carrying ramen noodles along Interstate-95 crashed this morning, January 21, near Rocky Mount, North Carolina, spilling ramen noodles over a large portion of the highway, reports ABC 7.

“I thought I could make it down to the truck stops in Kenly, and I didn't quite make it,” driver Larry Scholting told ABC News affiliate WTVD-TV. “I kind of drowsed off, and next thing I knew I had taken out the guard rail.” The trailer reportedly split open, scattering ramen noodle packets along southbound I-95.

Scholting was not injured in the crash, and no related injuries have been reported.

Several lanes of southbound traffic were closed by the state’s Department of Transportation this morning in order to clean up the ramen spillage.


 According to a traffic update from WRAL-TV, a Fox affiliate in North Carolina, all lanes are expected to reopen by 4 p.m.
