Truck spills beer onto Colorado interstate

Posted: Updated:
WHEAT RIDGE, CO (KUSA) -

A road in Colorado is posing a danger for trucks hauling beer.

A truck transporting alcohol overturned on a ramp from eastbound Highway 58 to eastbound Interstate 70 Thursday afternoon.

The Colorado Department of Transportation closed the ramp while crews cleared the scene. The driver suffered minor injuries and the passenger inside was not hurt.

The driver of the semi somehow lost control of the truck and flipped over the guard rail, emptying an entire load of beer.

Tow trucks used cranes to haul the truck away and ground crews spent the afternoon and evening cleaning up the beer that was left behind.

Since 2011 at least four trucks carrying beer have overturned in the same area. The latest incident happened three weeks ago over the Fourth of July weekend.
