Kool Aid crash

January 15, 2003

Albany -- Hundreds of Kool Aid drinks were scattered on the bypass in Albany Wednesday when a trailer overturned. The trailer, pulled behind a Chevy Suburban, started to fishtail and then flipped on the bypass between the Slappey and Nottingham exits.

The woman driving the Suburban, Brenda Johnson, wasn't hurt. Her husband, who was behind her in another truck said the trailer was overloaded with the juice packs.

Stan Johnson said it looked bad, but all that mattered was his wife was not hurt. The Johnson's are Little Debbie Distributors, and were taking the juice packs to Turner Jobs Corps for sale.

 Brenda Johnson was cited for driving too fast for conditions. It took an hour to tow the trailer and clean up all the juice packs.
