SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY, Calif. (WTHR) - A load of grapes was lost when the semi carrying them crashed in California wine country.

It happened early Friday morning in Manteca.

The driver told investigators he lost control of the rig on a sweeping curve. The wheels hit soft soil on the road's berm and it drifted into a ditch, rolling onto its side.

The spilled grapes quickly filled the ditch, an irrigation hold for a nearby orchard.

The driver was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.
