40,000 Pounds of Avocados Spill Onto Highway From Burning Big Rig
The bizarre scene unfolded Thursday outside Waxahachie, Texas.
A bizarre scene unfolded on a Texas highway this week when 40,000 pounds of avocados spilled onto the roadway.
The massive shipment of savory fruit was being hauled in an 18-wheeler on Interstate 35E outside Waxahachie on Thursday when the truck burst into flames.
Cameras on WFAA's HD Chopper 8 were rolling as the crates of avocados spilled all over the interstate while firefighters fought the blaze.
The accident also snarled traffic on the busy highway.
I-35E was closed for around three hours.
No one was hurt in the accident, which authorities says appears to have been caused by a mechanical issue.
