MARYLAND (NBC)--Part of a Maryland highway was shut down today when a tractor trailer wrecked and spilled beer all over the road.

A portion of interstate 270 northbound near Route 109 has been re-opened after a tractor trailer overturned, spilling beer all over the highway.

The accident happened just after four Thursday morning on Interstate 270, between Hagerstown and Washington.

The driver told police the tractor trailer began losing its load and then rolled over, hitting a guard rail and barriers.

The driver is Shannon Anderson from Norfolk, Virginia. She was transported to Frederick Hospital for minor injuries.

The truck was carrying Bud Light and Budweiser beer. Crews worked all morning to clear the truck and beer off the road.

The driver has been cited for failing to secure their load. The road was closed for more than six hours.
