I-75 was closed for more than seven hours yesterday after a semi-truck overturned, spilling fruit and fuel all over the road.

The southbound lane of I-75 was closed between the 104 and 97 exits. Clean up crews used bulldozers and shovels to clean up the papayas and other fruit.

The cause of the truck overturning is not officially being released. But early reports say the driver may have been trying to dodge another vehicle and ran off the road.
