A truck full of precious cargo has overturned on a busy road a day before New Year’s Eve.
At about 7.50am on Friday morning, a small truck carrying kegs of beer managed to tip over onto its side on the Spit Bridge at Mosman in Sydney.
The scene, which blocked several lanes of traffic, required help from emergency services crews to help clean up the spilt beer and pull the vehicle back on all four wheels.
Northbound commuters were delayed for about an hour as they worked to clear the scene.
Earlier in the year, a similar incident occurred in Queensland, which prompted a comment from Queensland Police: “No major injuries, but this one still hurts,” police tweeted in August, with an image of the beer-littered highway in Heathwood.
That incident was caused by a collision between two trucks, with at least one of them responsible for the safe delivery of the beer kegs.
The incident in NSW comes just a day before Sydney plays host to one of the most anticipated New Year’s Eve events in the country.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge will make a spectacular backdrop for a show full of fireworks and lights as the clock hits midnight.
