Mad Dash for the Hooch

Earlier this week, the Gainesville residents were faced with a tragic, horrific ordeal when a Toyota collided with a tractor trailer hauling kegs of beer. The driver was moving south along I-75 at 7:20 am when "for unknown reasons, drove the Toyota across the center and inside lanes before hitting the median guardrail. Then the pick up returned to the freeway where it was hit by the semi." A witness who wished to remain anonymous reported the driver seemed on edge and particularly eager to get to the beer. Haven't we all been there?

The Gainesville Sun goes on to report that minutes later a late-model GMC truck crashed into the semi "coming to a stop about eight feet inside the trailer. Columbia County firefighters and deputies were instrumental in cleaning up the crash site and controlling traffic." The cleaned up beer will be used at this week's Columbia County FD Texas Hold 'Em Poker Tournament & Fundraiser (to buy a new hook and ladder truck).

In a related story, Sherriff Buford T. Justice is still chasing the Bandit and Cledus.

Thanks to our friends at Gheorge for the tip.
