SUMMIT, South Dakota - Alcohol was involved a crash on Interstate 29 in South Dakota, but in a different way than usual.

A semitruck carrying beer rolled Wednesday morning on Interstate 29, near mile marker 207, after the driver fell asleep behind the wheel, the Highway Patrol said. The truck, which was headed northbound, tipped over in the median after the driver woke up and overcorrected.

The roof of the trailer then split open, dumping cans of beer onto the grass.

The driver was wearing his seatbelt and was treated for non-life threatening injuries.The Highway Patrol said alcohol was not a factor in the crash, other than the cases that tipped out of the truck.
