The Staten Island Expressway was shut down for hours Saturday after a truck overturned and dumped pineapples on the roadway.
The Staten Island Advance reports that the tractor-trailer flipped near the expressway's Slosson Avenue exit at about 5:45 a.m. Saturday.
The accident shut down eastbound traffic for several hours.
Firefighters tell the Advance that a second car also was involved. They say the driver of one of the vehicles was treated for minor injuries.
