Hundreds of beers spilled onto Katy Freeway in 18-wheeler crash

HOUSTON -- A big cleanup was underway on the Katy Freeway early Tuesday after an 18-wheeler and a car collided.

It happened around 12:30 a.m. near the exit for Wirt Road.

Both vehicles involved in the wreck lost control and spun out. The 18-wheeler jackknifed and rolled, spilling dozens of cases of beer all over the freeway's mainlanes.

The driver of the 18-wheeler was sent to the hospital in serious condition.

Houston police said it wasn't immediately known who was at-fault in the incident.

It took about five hours to clean up the mess.
