SEATTLE (AP) - Authorities say no one was injured after a semitrailer carrying 45,000 pounds of bananas rolled over on Interstate 5 in Skagit County.

KING-TV reports (https://kng5.tv/1UUfgN7 ) that the one-vehicle accident happened Sunday on Bow Hill.

The Washington State Patrol had worked for several hours to unload the bananas and bring the semitrailer, which was wedged between two guardrails, upright.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The incident comes days after a semitrailer hauling frozen crab rolled over on the Alaska Way Viaduct in Seattle. The owner of the crab says it was valued at more than $400,000.
