HOLDEN, LA (WAFB) -

An overturned beer truck on the shoulder of I-12 caused backups for drivers on Sunday.

It happened on I-12 East just before the Holden exit a little before noon.

No injuries were reported, but the accident tossed boxes of Budweiser and Busch beer about the median.

The wreck did not block any lanes, but traffic was slow-moving, probably due to rubberneckers trying to see what happened.

The cause of the crash is being investigated.
