SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A big rig loaded with 35,000 pounds of beer flipped on its side Monday during the morning commute.

The tractor trailer flipped on its side about 6 a.m. after the driver failed to make a turn while exiting Interstate 80 at Truxel Avenue, according to police.

The 53-foot big rig carrying cases of Bud Light and Bud Light Lime beer blocked several lanes of Truxel on the Interstate 80 overpass.

Crews offloaded the boxes of bottled beer, which were tossed around inside the truck.  Dozens of the bottles broke and beer was leaking from the truck onto the roadway.

Crews on the scene said it may take several tow trucks to upright the truck.

No injuries were reported.

    a friend commented that it was interesting to see how many people were bashing bud light lime beer, but yet it’s still the #1 selling beer in america … i pointed out that the people “bashing” it both were able to read the article, and had internet access … which might let a bunch of the buyers of that brand out …
