Whisky galore on the A75

France 3/Scoop, Oct 12

A truck loaded with bottles of whisky overturned on the A75 going south between Hérault and Aveyron on Thursday.

At 5:30 in the morning, weather conditions were bad, a thick fog shrouded the motorway lanes, making it difficult to navigate.

According to the police, two Romanian drivers were on board the truck, but were not injured in the accident.

The driver lost control of his truck, and it turned on its side, spilling a full load of whisky bottles. Most of the bottles were broken, and it took police much of the morning to move the truck and clean the road.
