Tractor-trailer truck carrying boxes of Tito's Handmade Vodka flipped to its side on a ramp on the border of Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County in Cornwells Heights, PA

CORNWELLS HEIGHTS, Pennsylvania --

An overturned tractor-trailer carrying bottles of vodka caused the closure of a busy I-95 ramp in Pennsylvania Thursday morning.

The incident happened around 4:45 a.m. on the border of Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County in Cornwells Heights.

The ramp from Woodhaven Road eastbound to I-95 southbound was blocked, with the truck flipped on its side.

Some boxes fell out of the truck and spilled onto the roadway.

Drivers were advised to take Street Road as an alternative route.

The truck was carrying boxes of bottles of Tito's Handmade Vodka out of Austin, Texas.

This stupid truck driver was going too fast and failed to negotiate the curve at the ramp.  This is so typical crash.  He ought to have slowed down, as this Vodka boxes load was not secure and it may have moved as he was going too fast around the curve.
