A tractor-trailer transporting avocados overturned on the 5 Freeway in the Pacomia area near Los Angeles county on Tuesday, closing five lanes.

A front-end loader was brought to the scene and workers were scooping the avocados onto another truck.

The crash happened at about 11:30 a.m. PDT, reports NBC. After all the lanes were closed following the crash, one re-opened at about noon.
