MANSFIELD, OH- A traffic accident on US 30 Westbound that occurred around 7:40 pm near the OH 13 exit in Mansfield had law enforcement rerouting traffic.

A semi-truck, owned by a private contractor, was carrying an estimated 43,000 pounds of beer when the semi flipped into a ditch after riding the guard rail for roughly 300 feet.

The vehicle is currently hanging over Fern Ave, and law enforcement feels they will have to pull the vehicle down to that area in order to remove it.

They plan to remove the beer before moving the semi, but what will be done with the beer is unknown. 

The driver was uninjured, and no other vehicles were involved.
