A truck driver was seriously injured after an early morning crash overturned his truck, filled with Budweiser beer, onto a Brooklyn highway, causing delays for morning commuters.
Around 4 a.m. on Monday, a tractor-trailer hauling hundreds of Budweiser cans overturned on the Gowanus Expressway near the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway exit, fire officials said to the New York Daily News. The truck driver was taken to New York Methodist Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.
Fuel spilled from the truck has been complicating officials’ cleanup effort, ABC7 reported. As part of the cleanup, the damaged trailer was suspended between two trucks and flipped upside down.
