It's OK to Cry Over Spilled Beer
On Monday, a Budweiser tractor trailer overturned outside Atlanta, GA. The combined weight of the truck, including the beer and the driver, was 80,000 lbs. Video apparently shows "amber-colored liquid leaking from the back of the truck and saturating the hot pavement of Interstate 285." No injuries were reported and it's not clear what type of beer was involved in the incident.
Yesterday, a truck carrying 1,200 cases of beer overturned on I-94 near Chicago, IL. According to one report "[t]he truck struck a guardrail and a concrete bridge support before rolling over at about 3:15 a.m." The good news is the driver suffered only minor injuries and the beer was Miller Lite.
