A lorry full of cauliflower overturned at Scotch Corner this morning.
The driver was uninjured and police say there is minimal congestion, although there may be delays when the vehicle is recovered.
North Yorkshire Police’s road policing group said in a pun-laden post on social media: “Cauli Gosh. There’s been a road traffic caulision. Let’s hope it’s a one off and not the first of five today.
The earlier traffic collision resulted in a shed load of cauliflowers which is also going to require clearing up. Maintenance teams are at scene working to clear them and make the road safe for vehicles again. pic.twitter.com/aDnzY03Net

“This occurred 5.20am this morning on Scotch Corner roundabout when an artic loaded with cauliflowers overturned.
“Main thing is the drivers fine and there is minimum congestion.
“However bear it in mind, there maybe hold ups when it is recovered.
“Once recovered the road will be open, and the jobs a carrot The road surface is fine as nothing leeked from the truck.
“And sorry for the cheesy jokes..”
