Smashed: 30,000 beer bottles spark German highway chaos
[BERLIN] Around 30,000 bottles of beer scattered across a German highway after a truck accident Wednesday, snarling traffic and sparking a sudsy clean-up operation.
Police said a car collided with a delivery vehicle on the autobahn north of Frankfurt, knocking the lorry against a guardrail.
When its tarp tore open, 1,500 cases tumbled out, strewing the bottles across the road.
The highway was partially closed and clean-up of the boozy spill was still ongoing hours later.
The driver was taken to hospital for a medical examination. Both vehicles were towed.
