There Are a Lot of Mangoes on Loop 202 Right Now

If you're sneaking out of work early this Friday afternoon and you take the Loop 202 to get home, that might suck, because there are a lot of mangoes on it.

Arizona DOT cameras show a pickup truck that was on fire in the HOV lane on Loop 202 at 32nd Street, and an ADOT spokesman says those are crates of spilled mangoes seen everywhere.

That truck was on fire about a half-hour before this post, but at the time of this post, all the lanes except the HOV lane are open, although the traffic still looks like a damn mess.
