MORTON, Ill. (AP) -- Budget-conscious eaters might be cringing: Police say a truck carrying ramen noodles overturned in central Illinois.

The 60-year-old driver from Columbus, Ohio, apparently was driving too fast Wednesday night on a ramp connecting two interstates near Morton in Tazewell County. Any injuries weren’t considered to be life-threatening.

State police Sgt. Tony Halsey didn’t know if the trailer broke open, but he says all the ramen had to be unloaded. The Journal Star says traffic was back to normal by 7 a.m. on the holiday.
