Truck Spills Thousands of Pints of Beer Onto Highway

Semi-truck hauling beer overturned while crossing an overpass

Thankfully, there were no reports of injuries associated with the accident.

A truck accident in Denver earlier this week spilled thousands of pints of beer onto the highway.

The truck overturned as it was crossing an overpass, spilling hundreds of cans of beer onto speeding cars below, which swerved out of the way. Thankfully, there were no injuries reported as a result of the incident, KDVR reported.

The accident happened around 6 p.m. Wednesday, and traffic was backed up for miles as crews worked to remove the truck and clean up the beer.

Police are continuing to investigate the crash to determine what caused the truck to overturn and if the driver faces any charges, KUSA detailed.

The truck was carrying a load of spoiled Miller Genuine Draft beer to be recycled. Police estimate an approximate 60,000 pounds of beer was lost.
