A semi-trailer truck hauling beer lost control and rolled on Wednesday, sending cans of booze onto Highway 10.

The single-vehicle crash happened at around 9:15 a.m. near Cranberry Portage.

RCMP say the driver was taken to hospital in Flin Flon and has since been released.

Highway 10 is closed at the accident scene to allow for the beer to be cleaned up. No detours are in effect, so motorists should expect delays.

UPDATE: 6:07 p.m. — This section of Highway 10 (14 kilometres north of Highway 39) has since reopened to traffic.
