BUTTERWORTH: A lorry transporting empty beer barrels turned turtle after the driver lost control and landed on the roadside along the North-South Expressway near the Seberang Jaya Expo ground here.

Several eyewitnesses said a Proton Wira and a motorcycle were also involved in the accident.
The motorcyclist was injured while the car driver escaped unhurt.
