BEER IN GERMANY IS MUCH CHEAPER THAN it is in Denmark. So naturally, there are clusters of beer stores along the German-Danish border catering to the fleets of vans and other small trucks who load up to take some back home. Early Saturday morning, one of the Danish entrepreneurs failed to secure his load properly before heading back home on a rain-slickened highway. While traveling, his vanload of beer shifted causing the vehicle to spin off the road and crash into a pole.
The impact itself wasn’t too hard, but the sudden shift forward of the hundreds of pounds of beer cans nailed the driver and crushed him to death.
Before the van could be towed away, all of the beer had to be offloaded by hand. So who better to do it than a gang of firefighters? Most of them have probably already been practicing picking up cans of beer recently, anyway.
