MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a semi hauling more than 40,000 pounds of shredded cheese crashed into a guardrail on Interstate 5 near Ashland.

The semi took out 320 feet of the guardrail and cheese spilled onto the highway

The Mail Tribune reported (https://is.gd/rrlvbE ) that the truck driver was hauling the product in a refrigerated box trailer for Papa John’s Pizza. The truck and trailer were totaled in the crash, and a salvage team from a towing company cleared away the spilled cheese.

The California man driving the truck complained of minor back pain, but declined to be taken to a hospital. Police have not said what caused the crash.
