Beer debris closes portion I-71 SB after accident in Medina County

The State Highway Patrol says a portion of Interstate 71 southbound just north of Lodi, was temporarily closed after an accident involving two tractor trailers early Friday.

The patrol says no injuries have been reported, but it appears the two trucks swiped each other leaving debris scattered across the roadway. One of the semi-truck's was carrying bottles of Thirsty Dog beer. The Thirsty Dog Brewing Company is based out of Akron.

Crews are working to clean the beer debris along the highway. Clean-up is expected to last into the afternoon because the street sweeper vehicle has a flat due to the glass in the roadway.
