A collision between two semi trucks about 4:20 a.m. Friday left hundreds of beer bottles scattered across the roadway on Interstate 71 south in Westfield Township just south of Interstate 76. The left lane remained closed until the afternoon as crews tried to clean up the mess. Neither truck driver was injured. The lost beer belonged to Akron-based Thirsty Dog brewing company. Coincidentally, the crash happened on International Beer Day, a celebration of local beers and breweries throughout the world.
