If 43,000 pounds of Dos Equis beer spills on highway is anyone sad?

July 15, 2008

A truck carrying 43,000 pounds of beer blew a tire, overturned and caught fire shortly before noon Monday on eastbound I-20 in DeKalb County.

According to DeKalb County Fire Rescue spokesman Capt. Eric Jackson, dozens of full and unopened Dos Equis beer kegs inside the truck did not spill during the accident — to the dismay of hundreds who were forced to wait in the hot midday sun until blocked lanes were cleared about 1:45 p.m.

Nobody was hurt in the wreck, which blocked two of the center lanes of the interstate just east of Panola Road.
