An overturned truck stopped commuter traffic Friday morning June 21, 2007 near the Orange-Lake county line for a little more than an hour and spilled produce across Florida's Turnpike. The tractor-trailer loaded with green peppers, cucumbers and lettuce was traveling northbound at 7:30 a.m. near mile marker 273 in Oakland. The driver fell asleep and ran into the guardrail, Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Jorge Delahoz said. He was transported to South Lake Hospital with minor injuries. Lanes reopened around 8:40 a.m.
