Call it a banana crash.
A tractor-trailer hauling a load of bananas overturned on I-86 late-Monday prompting a lengthy clean-up process.
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.
