ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. -- The North Carolina Highway Patrol says a tractor-trailer driver hauling a load of Ramen noodles nodded off at the wheel and crashed, causing a mess along southbound I-95 near Rocky Mount Wednesday morning.

Troopers said the truck hit the NC Hwy 48 bridge that goes over the interstate at Exit 145 in Nash County.

The driver was not seriously hurt in the crash, but packets of noodles were scattered all along the highway.

A detour was set up while workers cleared up the mess.
