A semi truck filled with holiday hams overturned on a busy section of interstate.

The truck was headed to Texas when it wrecked in metro Atlanta, spilling about 40,000 pounds of hams onto an Interstate 85 ramp, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Authorities quickly worked to remove the hams from the road.

The crash also caused a diesel fuel spill and the driver has minor injuries, but nobody was seriously hurt.
