Scattered beer bottles close Highway 5

Scattered beer bottles smashed across Highway 5 closed the road this morning after a beer truck overturned.

Transport Quebec spent the early morning clearing the broken glass and sweeping up the booze where an 18-wheeler truck full of bottles crashed near the Highway 50 ramp.

The incident happened at about 2 a.m. and the highway has been closed since.

The road is expected to reopen around 8:30 a.m.
