A big rig lost its load in Dixon spilling 26,000 pounds of tomatoes across Pedrick Road Tuesday morning.

The driver told police he swerved to avoid a speeding car and that's when his trailer overturned. Police say the driver tried to drag the trailer, but eventually stopped.

The road had to be shut down while crews cleaned up the mess.

The driver was not hurt.
