The cursed residents of Wheat Ridge, CO dealt with another in a series of recent tragedies yesterday when another semi-trailer filled with beer overturned on Interstate 70. The driver was heading eastbound and exiting Highway 58 just after high noon and apparently failed to hit the ramp at a slow rate of speed. The truck was carrying more than 70,000 lbs of beer, including 160 kegs and more than 1,000 cans of beer. According to reports, this is the third truck to roll on what we are now dubbing "Devil's Off Ramp" since August of 2008.
The truck, owned by Central Refrigerated Services, Inc. was said to be coming from the Coors Brewery. The good news is that the driver was not hurt and the spilled beer was apparently Keystone, which nobody drinks anyway.
