Overturned tractor-trailer removed after spilling vodka on US 70

A tractor trailer carrying a large load of vodka overturned on Thursday near U.S. Highway 70 and Shotwell Road in Clayton.

The wreck occurred around 5:45 a.m. at one of Clayton's busiest intersections, town officials stated. Fire crews were able to quickly contain an oil spill related to the crash.

A passerby stopped to help the driver to get out of the truck, which was carrying 17 pallets, or about 40,000 pints, of vodka. Officials say no one was injured.


The truck's cab and trailer were disconnected to try to right the rig. But when crews tried to get the trailer upright, the weight of the load bent the metal body against the straps. Instead, the cargo will be taken off box by box, officials said.

The North Carolina State Highway patrol conducted a weight inspection and faulted the driver, 33-year-old Johnathan Davis Chrissy, of Kingsland, Georgia, for the crash. Troopers said Chrissy did not lock down the load, causing it to shift in the trailer when he took the turn onto Shotwell.

My hope is that it was cheap vodka and not the good stuff Dave. Then again if it had happened close to me I would have been there with my shop vac getting me some free hooch......

Many comments on the article were hoping that a truck carrying tomato or OJ juice would flip at the same spot.
