June 8 (UPI) -- Arizona transportation officials said a truck that overturned on a highway ramp spilled thousands of cans of Bud Light onto the roadway.

The Arizona Department of Transportation said the eastbound US-60 ramp to southbound Loop 101 in Tempe was closed Wednesday morning when the truck tipped onto its side about 10:15 a.m. and spilled its load of Bud Light.

"Bud Light. Apparently is heavier than you might think...Toppled the trailer," the Department of Transportation tweeted.

"No crying over spilled beer," ADOT said in another tweet.

Police said the driver lost control on the ramp and tipped onto its side, allowing the beer to spill from the top of the trailer.

"Caution, it's a little foamy there," ADOT tweeted.

The driver was rescued from the overturned truck by emergency responders and taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

Officials said the ramp re-opened about 3:45 p.m.
