On Thursday, July 5, 2007, a truck crash spilled hundreds of watermelons across the interstate exchange in Cincinnatti.

Unfortunately, the driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was killed when he lost control of the truck.

The truck ran into a guardrail and overhead bridge support on the ramp from northbound Interstate 75 to westbound Interstate 74. The truck rolled over and the trailer was torn open in the crash, throwing its load of fruit across the road and under the overpass.

The ramp remained closed until about 7 p.m. while crews cleaned up the fruit.
