I scream, you scream, we all scream because there's a semi-truck full of ice cream on fire.

A truck full of sweet treats erupted in flames Tuesday, after the driver started choking and careened through traffic into a guard rail.

He was hauling the load from Washington state to Aurora, Colo. at about 2 p.m. when he started coughing violently, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. He was in Layton, Utah at the time.

He reportedly moved to the center median in an attempt to stop, but couldn't slow down fast enough. He veered through the southbound lanes of Highway 89 and hit a guard rail, FOX 13 reports.

That's when the truck became the world's largest Baked Alaska. Its fuel tank burst and the truck caught fire, melting everything -- including the trailer -- inside. Firefighters extinguished the blaze, and a hazardous materials team was dispatched to clean up the oil.

We hope the driver sees the good humor in this. Besides, ice cream is sooooo much better when its a little bit melty. You know? Like, when you stir it up a bunch and it gets a bit soupy. That's the best.

The cherry on top of this sundae: Nobody was injured.
