A beer truck spilled several cases on Thursday in Joliet.

JOLIET – A beer delivery driver was likely the subject of several toasts by passers-by Thursday in downtown Joliet.

About 11 a.m. the driver of a Budweiser delivery truck was turning at Cass and Collins streets when several cases of Bud Light bottles fell off the truck, Joliet Police Sgt. Patrick Cardwell said.

“Several citizens noticed and started helping themselves to the beer,” Cardwell said.

Cardwell said staff at the nearby Burger King called police after some of the witnesses to the spill started enjoying the salvage in the parking lot.

No one was injured. The truck driver was not cited.
