The eastbound U.S. 60 ramp to the southbound Loop 101 was closed for several hours after a truck hauling beer flipped on its side, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

According to the Department of Public Safety, the single-vehicle crash happened just after 10 a.m. when the driver of the truck lost control on the transition ramp. The truck rolled on its side, spilling the load of beer.

The driver was transported to a local hospital and the injuries were not life-threatening.

The ramp reopened just before 3:45 p.m.
