ARBOGA, Sweden, July 9 (UPI) -- Emergency responders in Sweden said a truck crashed into a railing on a highway, spilling its load of beer onto the road.

Ola Magnusson, the emergency services commander, said the truck crashed into a railing on the E18 between Arboga and Orebro during the morning commute Tuesday and spilled its load of beer cans onto the road, Swedish news agency TT reported Tuesday.

Many of the cans were destroyed, covering the road in booze.

Magnusson said the driver of the truck was uninjured and crews were working to determine whether any of the beer cans could be salvaged.

"They're pretty thorough when it comes to alcoholic beverages. Every barcode is supposed to be scanned due to alcohol taxes and other reasons but it looks dark. A lot is crumpled and can be overlooked," Magnusson said.
