It's the stuff of Simpsons episodes and action comedies: WNBC reports that a truck carrying cases of beer exploded early this morning on the Cross Bronx Expressway. It seems like it was a crash, not there were no rivers of beer flowing down Rosedale Avenue. Luckily, the driver managed to escape, so there were no major injuries but the CBE is closed, leading to morning commute delays.

And if you take the 4, 5 or 6 trains, the delays and suspended service are because of some signal problems. Of course.

There was a milk truck accident in Chicago a few weeks ago.
