No injuries were reported after a beer truck and a tanker collided as part of a two-car crash in Palmerton Wednesday afternoon.

Borough police Detective Kevin Buck said the incident occurred at 2:05 p.m. in the area of Mauch Chunk Road and Delaware Avenue.

Buck said a tanker truck was turning off Route 248 onto Mauch Chunk Road while a beer truck was coming down Delaware Avenue.

Water was leaking all over, and traffic was backed up.

Buck said the tanker suffered a snapped axle, while the beer truck also sustained damage.

He said both vehicles had to be towed from the scene.
