The North Carolina Interstate 85 was filled with 21 tons of beer August 18th, when a tractor-trailer truck collided with another vehicle, spilling the tons of Hoppy Libations across the roadways.
The location of the car accident was on I-85 North in Gastonia, NC, and occurred on or about 5:00 p.m. Traffic reports were inflated drastically due to the accident, especially during the ” 5:00 o’clock traffic rush.”
The cause of the accident has been investigated, and it appears as though during a rain storm, the driver of the car spun out of control, slamming into the driver of the tractor-trailer. It was truck driver Jessie Cabiness’ 40th birthday on the date of the accident.
Luckily, there were no injuries that arose from the car accident, aside from the fact that the shipping company is taking the entire shipment of beer to the dump.
Police said the car driver was cited for driving unsafe for the conditions.
