Traffic moving again on I-55 after 18-wheeler crashes, spilling Alfredo sauce

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — An 18-wheeler crashed into a wall on the interstate, spilling Alfredo sauce and shutting down part of I-55 in the process Tuesday afternoon, according to Memphis Police.

The crash was reported at I-55 and McLemore around 4:44 p.m., according to the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT).

TDOT said that all northbound traffic in the area was shut down.

TDOT cameras in the area showed cars scooting by on the shoulder as TDOT crews worked to clear the truck and sauce off the interstate.

The damage from the crash also caused southbound traffic to be limited to one lane.

Memphis Police said one woman was taken from that scene to the hospital in non-critical condition.

Clean-up continued into the evening, with traffic slowly moving as crews worked to clear the mess.
