Beer Truck Tipsy, But Tuolumne Road Open

Sponsored by:

Tuolumne Road in Sonora is open, but crews are still working to right a big-rig filled with beer that tipped over Friday morning.

The accident is near Hess Ave and Industrial Way, just past the Junction.

CHP officer Brad Olson said the truck driver over-shot the entrance to Benites Distributing on the 14000 block of Tuolumne Road. When the driver made a turn onto the road´s shoulder to get back to the driveway, the mud and wet ground gave way under the weight of the fully loaded rig and the truck toppled onto its side.

The trailer is full of beer kegs headed to the Sonora distributor.
