PHOENIX (AP) -- All lanes of Interstate 10 in downtown Phoenix have reopened after a semi-truck carrying watermelons overturned in the Deck Park Tunnel.

The accident snarled traffic in Thursday afternoon's rush hour.

By 5 p.m., the Arizona Department of Transportation says the HOV lane and three eastbound lanes had been reopened.

Two westbound lanes remain closed at Seventh Street as crews work to clean up the debris Thursday.

No injuries have been reported, but smashed watermelons were spread across part of the tunnel.
