Traffic was slow going through Interstate 26 in North Charleston Friday morning after a truck collision spilled hundreds of cases of beer onto the highway.
The South Carolina Highway Patrol says it has finished cleaning up the collision near mile marker 205, which is just north of I-26’s junction with U.S. Highway 78.
The two trucks were traveling eastbound at about 11am when they crashed, causing one truck to hit the concrete median. The impact tore open the side of its trailer, emptying its cargo of beer cans out into the westbound lanes. The mess was across all three lanes on the westbound side at one point.
It took troopers four hours to clean up the scene and reopen it to traffic. There were no serious injuries.
According to the Charleston Post & Courier, the truck was carrying Schlitz Malt Liquor and Old Milwaukee beer.
