    Vitamin C, anyone? A road in north San Diego County was covered in oranges Tuesday morning after a truck’s trailer overturned, spilling the fruit by the thousands into the street.

    The trailer tipped in the 38600 block of Pala-Temecula Rd. in Pala just before 9:30 a.m.

    Aerial images of the scene showed the fruit had spilled from dozens of bins secured on the tipped-over trailer. As a result, the road was a very bright orange color ,as opposed to its usual earth tones.

    California Highway Patrol officials shut down southbound traffic at Pechanga Parkway and Pala-Temecula Road at Deer Hollow Way after the spill. A SigAlert was issued for the area.

    No injuries were reported, officials said. The accident is under investigation.
