Truck Carrying Mangoes Overturns On Beltway In Maryland, Makes Traffic Mess

BETHESDA, Md. (AP/WJZ) — Mangoes spilling from an overturned tractor-trailer caused a not-so-sweet morning commute on the Beltway in Maryland.

The truck overturned early Wednesday on Interstate 495 in Bethesda. Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service spokesman Pete Piringer says one person suffered minor injuries.

It's unclear what caused the truck to roll onto its side.

The Washington Post reports that traffic backed up for miles (kilometers) around 6 a.m. while two lanes of the highway were closed.
