Beer truck hops over Jersey wall on 14th Street Bridge

A box truck from beer and wine distributor, Hop and Wine, hopped a Jersey wall on the outbound 14th Street Bridge in D.C. just before 3 a.m. Friday.

The crash comes on a day that is heavily traveled as people make their way in and out of town for the Christmas holiday.

Traffic on the outbound 14th Street Bridge got by in a single left lane.

By 11 a.m. the truck had been cleared from the scene.

During the morning commute, drivers could only use one lane outbound.
