Truck overturns in North Carolina, loses 44,000 pounds of vodka

UPI News Service, 09/22/2017 

Authorities in North Carolina said no humans were injured when a tractor-trailer flipped onto its side, but there were casualties -- about 40,000 pounds of vodka.

A post on the official Facebook page for the Town of Clayton said the truck overturned on U.S. 70 just before 6 a.m. Thursday when the weight of the 17 pallets of vodka shifted inside the trailer.

A heavy-duty wrecker attempted to return the truck to the upright position, but the weight was found to be too great and the trailer had to be unloaded by hand before the vehicle could be righted.

Authorities said many of the bottles shattered in the crash and the entire load -- 44,000 pounds of New Amsterdam vodka -- will be destroyed, the News & Observer reported.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol said driver Johnathan Davis Chrissy, 33, is being faulted for failing to secure the load.
