An early morning accident that sent one person to the hospital also left Tx-Dot crews cleaning up a tropical mess.

This afternoon Tx-Dot crews could be seen clearing out pineapples from a semi-truck and the surrounding areas on Highway 287 going westbound just outside of Bowie.

DPS Troopers say it was just about 5:00 am when a semi-truck driving in the fast line came up to a vehicle without any tail lights.

The truck driver said he tried to swerve into the median to avoid the vehicle but when he did he flipped over.

DPS Troopers say he was taken to United Regional for some internal head and back injuries.
