An unexpected spill early Tuesday resulted in a Texas freeway being closed with a popular fruit littering the road.

The accident happened at 12:41 a.m. and involved two semi-trucks. One of the vehicle’s cargo, thousands of avocados, spilled across the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10. There was a long cleanup, as parts of the freeway had to be closed until about 1 p.m.

There were no fatalities in the accident.

“As of 9 a.m. this morning, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) had crews en route to clean the site,” Matt Schima with the Cibolo Police Department said to CNN. “Two occupants, to include the avocado truck driver, were transported by EMS from the scene in stable condition. A third vehicle, a passenger van, was also involved and driven from the scene.”

The accident is costly. In July, the average price of an avocado was about $2.10. The price of avocados has nearly doubled from 2018.

The Cibolo Police had a sense of humor about the incident. On Facebook, the department included the hashtag, “#whynotdonuts,” on a post reporting on the situation.

Interstate 10 runs along the southern U.S. from Florida, to Los Angeles. In Texas, it passes through major cities like Houston and San Antonio.
