Beer spill stalls Flathead traffic

Commuters on U.S. Highway 93 North near Happy Valley dealt with some headaches Tuesday morning after a tractor trailer carrying Kokanee beer crashed and rolled over onto its roof. Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Roger Dundas tells us that the semi was headed northbound on U.S. Highway 93 North at around 5:30 a.m. when the driver switched lanes and got sucked into the median by soft snow. The truck then slid into the southbound lanes of the highway and rolled over onto its roof.

Authorities say the driver suffered only some bumps and scrapes as a result of the accident.

Officials with Fun Beverages say they picked up the broken beer bottles to the dump, which was just a mile away. Source
