Bobby Dodge, 56, a contract beer truck driver was arrested on November 12, 2008 on suspicion of driving under the influence after his big rig overturned in suburban Wheat Ridge, according to this KKTV news report. Police officials say Dodge was traveling east on Colorado 58 when he took the exit ramp too fast for the eastbound Interstate 70. That was when his truck flipped over.
Wheat Ridge police say the beer, which Dodge had recently picked up from Golden, remained in the truck’s trailer. Officials had to take out the entire load of beer from the truck to set it upright. Thankfully no other vehicles were involved in this big rig accident and no injuries were reported. Dodge was booked and taken to a detoxification facility, the news report stated.
