Truck Accident Spills Beer All Over California Highway

A truck driver lost control of his vehicle yesterday morning, causing a truck accident that spilled beer all over Interstate 5 near Bakersfield, California. The truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and began veering off the road. As the driver realized what was happening, he overcorrected in an attempt to get the truck back on the road. However, his maneuvers caused the truck to tip over on its side, spilling its cargo – cans of Tecate beer – across the highway.

Traffic was detoured off the highway as emergency crews raced to clean up the mess before morning rush hour. The highway reopened before the peak commute. The driver was not injured in the truck accident.

Truck driver fatigue is a common cause of truck accidents in our country today. Many truck drivers are required to work excessively long hours with few breaks in order to meet their deadlines, leaving them too tired to effectively operate the vehicle. When truck drivers experience fatigue, they often are unable to focus their full attention on the road, increasing their risk of accident. Due to the excessive size and weight of tractor-trailers, the injuries suffered in truck accidents are often catastrophic.
