It’s a good thing this happened immediately after the long weekend and not before, as a beer truck managed to become jammed underneath an M4 overpass in Sydney’s Granville today.

As ABC reports, the truck had close calls with two overpasses before finally becoming stuck under a third at 10am this morning in what could have been a pretty nasty accident.

While the truck was beaten up following the incident, the driver – and beers – were thankfully mostly unharmed. Cars were allowed to continue on the overpass, but traffic was stopped on Arthur St as a crew worked first to safely remove carton after carton from the danger area, before turning their attention to the truck.

Police have spoken to the driver, but no word yet on how or why they managed to find themselves in such a predicament, and put so many precious beverages at risk.
