What a spicy way to start a Monday.

A portion of New York City’s Brooklyn-Queens Expressway was littered with a massive mess of vegetables – apparently, hundreds of bell peppers – Monday morning after a delivery truck overturned and spilled the haul of healthy foods all over the roadway.

The truck was traveling in the eastbound lanes of the BQE when the vehicle somehow flipped onto its side at around 7:15 a.m. near Exit 30 to Flushing Avenue in Brooklyn, an NYPD spokesperson said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Aerial footage taken by NBC New York showed what appeared to be yellow and orange bell peppers and dozens of cardboard boxes strewn all over the roadway in the aftermath of the crash.

The incident snarled traffic on the busy highway, blocking three of four lanes of traffic.
