It was a boozy mess Monday morning when a semi-truck hauling Bud Light cans overturned on the 91 Freeway in Riverside.
The driver of the semi seemed to have lost control when he tried to avoid a collision with another car while driving eastbound on the 91 Freeway near the 60 Freeway transition at about 8 a.m., Tyler Reynolds said, spokesman for the Riverside Fire Department.
Traffic was backed up for hours as officials cleaned up hundreds of 24 ounce Bud Light cans that spilled out of the truck.

Rescue crews had to cut the windshield off the semi to free the driver who was able to walk out of it before being transported to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, Reynolds said.
Another car was hit during the crash, the driver of that vehicle left the scene without injury.
A SigAlert was issued with crews closing down all lanes on the Artesia Freeway before reopening two of them just before 10 a.m.
