The crash happened between exits 57 and 58 in Chemung County around 10:15 p.m., according to first responders.

Around 40,000 lbs of bananas were being hauled by the truck when the driver lost control.


The tractor-trailer struck the median, then overturned.

First responders say the driver only suffered minor injuries.

However, clean-up lasted into the day on Tuesday. By noon the truck remained overturned at the scene. A few hours later it was cleared.
