The A7 motorway became blocked to traffic on Wednesday morning, when a truck loaded with lemons overturned and spilt its load.
The incident happened at kilometre 545 of the motorway, near to Orihuela, at 11:49, when the truck crossed the carriageway for reasons which are being investigated.
Having shed its load, the road became closed and the emergency services diverted traffic via the N-340, whilst fire fighters freed the driver who had become trapped by his leg.
The driver was taken to the hospital in Orihuela suffering a fractures limb, whilst efforts continued to remove the truck and its citrus load from the road.
