SAN ANTONIO -- A trailer-truck carrying produce flipped over on its side Thursday morning, sending 30,000 pounds of limes rolling across Highway 90, according to police.

The incident happened just before 3:15 a.m. on the entrance ramp of Highway 90, coming from Interstate 37, south of downtown.

Police said the driver of the truck lost control of the vehicle and flipped over. The driver and passenger were not injured, according to investigators at the scene.

The cleanup is expected to take over four hours; police do not expect the road to reopen until 10 a.m. Cleanup crews were manually filling crates full of limes and loading them onto another truck.
