Berlin - Around 30 000 bottles of beer scattered across a German highway after a truck accident on Wednesday, snarling traffic and sparking a sudsy clean-up operation.

Police said a car collided with a delivery vehicle on the autobahn north of Frankfurt, knocking the lorry against a guardrail.

When its tarp tore open, 1 500 cases tumbled out, strewing the bottles across the road.

The highway was partially closed and clean-up of the boozy spill was still ongoing hours later.

The driver was taken to hospital for a medical examination. Both vehicles were towed.
