At around 4am last night, a truck loaded with bananas overturned on the Northbound portion of Interstate 270. Traffic was briefly closed between the Capital Beltway and Old Georgetown Road and was reopened in time for today’s rush hour. The southbound portion of 270 was unaffected.
If you’re driving by this section of 270, you’ll spot the truck on the shoulder, as the truck and it contents will be removed after rush hour.

That’s just bananas. Glad everyone’s okay.
I heard the driver was “peeling” out. HAR HAR HAR
Cue Harry Chapin’s “30,000 Pounds Of Bananas” for the soundtrack.
The Beltway already feels like a game of Mario Kart some days… anyone got a truck full of turtle shells?
