You might say this crash was a bit tipsy all the way around.
A semi hauling a variety of beer in cans and bottles tipped over on westbound Interstate 90 while coming down Fourth of July Pass east of Coeur d'Alene at 12:22 p.m. Wednesday.
Some of the cans of beer, including Natural Ice, floated downstream in the flow of natural icy-cold spring runoff along the freeway.
"I'm told that the beer is low quality domestic — Rolling Rock and Bud Light," joked Idaho State Police Capt. John Kempf, who wasn't at the scene but helped distribute information about the crash.
The driver of the 2017 Volvo semi, Feliks Giterman, 43, of Brooklyn, N.Y., had to be extricated from the vehicle before being transported to Kootenai Health with non-life threatening injuries. He was wearing his seat belt and the lone occupant. The extrication lasted about a half an hour.
