Broken beer truck slows traffic on U.S. Hwy 280

BRYAN CO., GA (WTOC) -

There was a little bit of a slowdown in North Bryan County Thursday morning. 

A tractor trailer hauling beer somehow snapped apart on U.S. Highway 280 at the on-ramp to westbound Interstate 16. 

The truck had been loaded earlier in Jacksonville, Florida, and the driver reportedly stopped for breakfast and was trying to get back on his way when the semi snapped apart. 

Fortunately, the driver was able to pull over on to the shoulder so no traffic was affected. However, cleanup is expected to take a while. Drivers are advised to use extreme caution in the area.
