If you were driving down I-75 in Clayton County earlier this morning, you probably saw tons of watermelons on the interstate.

A tractor-trailer carrying thousands of pounds of watermelon crashed on the I-75 northbound ramp to I-285 westbound just before 6 a.m. The ramp reopened an hour later, but the crash left some commuters stuck in traffic and others without the sweet juices of those fruits.

Such a waste. I do love watermelons.
