Big rig crash in Texas spills avocados, snarling traffic

FORRESTON, Texas (AP) — About 40,000 pounds of avocados spilled across a major interstate in Central Texas when the big rig hauling them crashed and caught fire.

WFAA-TV reports that the spill in Forreston, Texas, last Thursday snarled traffic and diverted drivers, closing Interstate 35E for three hours. The 18-wheeler went up in flames.

The Texas Department of Public Safety did not immediately release the cause of the incident or the condition of the driver.
