The tractor-trailer carrying the grapefruit lost the load while traveling on the turnpike near State Road 50. Clean-up crews were immediately called to the scene of the incident.

In aerial footage of the freeway, the crews could be seen sweeping thousands of grapefruits off of the roadway. The truck, meanwhile, had pulled over to salvage the rest of the load, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Fittingly, the citrus spill happened in Orange County.

No one was hurt, according to reports. However, the spill did cause temporary congestion while the road was being cleaned. Traffic reportedly came to a standstill for about 10 minutes before the freeway was opened up to a single lane.
