LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

An early morning crash involving a semi-truck caused major travel delays on Interstate 15 in south Las Vegas Friday.

The truck was carrying 79,000 pounds of bananas, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol, when it struck the center median at about 6 a.m. on northbound I-15 near the St. Rose Parkway exit.

Troopers had the left two lanes blocked when they were working to clear the truck from the scene and significant traffic delays were reported in the area.

No injuries were reported in the crash, but the bananas were no longer good for human consumption according to the health department.

Drivers were informed to avoid the area during the incident according to NHP.
