Coquitlam, B.C. — Some spills are objectively worse than others. Red wine on a white carpet or bleach on a black tee are at the top of the not-so-good list, but beer spillage on a highway actually sounds quite pleasant — maybe not for the fallen beverages, however.
Beer lovers’ wet dream came to life on Tuesday, when a truck traveling eastbound on Lougheed Highway close to Coquitlam B.C., ripped open and dumped thousands of Budweisers onto the road.
“My mom and I just thought it was funny, couldn’t believe our eyes,” Brianagh O’Driscoll, a Port Coquitlam resident who witnessed the clean-up told the Times Colonist.
Police said the incident occured because the trailer separated from the truck, which caused the beers to fall out when the vehicle came to halt.
The road was subsequently blocked up for several hours as crews worked feverishly to clean up the foamy mess.
Police confirmed that no one was injured, but unfortunately many beers met their maker as a result of the incident.
