It was a case of “the party’s over”  before it even got started after an accident on  Interstate 395 in Griswold, Connecticut,  Wednesday.  State Police say a tractor trailer carrying champagne  hit a state DOT crash truck,  spilling its cargo.

A Department of Transportation truck was parked in the northbound travel lanes near exit 85, performing highway maintenance,  when it was hit from the rear by the Freightliner driven by 56-year-old William Wronski of Blackstone, Maryland.  Police say the Freightliner rolled onto the driver’s side and the trailer broke open, spilling the contents across the roadway.  Both drivers were taken to the hospital with what were described as minor injuries.

Interstate 395 northbound was closed for hours  time while a cleanup crew was called in to remove the champagne.
