Police say load shift caused truck hauling $400K of Jack Daniels to overturn


A single vehicle crash left a Tennessee roadway soaked in whiskey on Wednesday morning.

The crash occurred around 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, November 17, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

“A semi loaded with $400K worth of Jack Daniel’s Whiskey overturned after the load shifted as the driver was making a left turn onto the I-24 on-ramp from S. Church St,” the Murfreesboro Police Department said.

No injuries were reported.

Police say that several gallons of Jack Daniels spilled out as the truck was uprighted by a wrecker.

The truck driver picked up the load of whiskey in Lynchburg and was heading to Nashville to the railroad terminal, where the load was scheduled to be shipped to Israel.
