Forty-thousand pounds of mac and cheese spilled from a trailer in Nashville, Tenn., when it overturned on the road. Just one day earlier, two trucks hauling chicken and pumpkin pies caught fire.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Crews had to clean up the pasta fiasco, which was actually the third course in a series of food-related accidents in Tennessee. Previous crashes damaged chicken and pumpkin pies. This mac and cheese crash, however, was the most serious carb wreck.
