A tanker truck transporting 6,000 gallons of Scotch whiskey flipped over on a New Jersey road and ignited Tuesday.
The truck was reportedly making a turn when it clipped a telephone pole
, hit a parked Cadillac, and flipped over in Woodbridge, N.J., Tuesday morning, Fire Chief Dan Gregan told MyCentralJersey.com. No injuries were reported.
Gregan said it was unclear whether it was the diesel fuel from the truck or the spilled Scotch that caught fire.

The truck is reportedly owned by B-Line Trucking in Newark, N.J., according to Police Capt. Roy Hoppock. It's unclear what the truck was doing on a residential Woodbridge road.
"For us, it is unusual,"
firefighter Frank DellaPietro told the New York Post. "We usually deal with gasoline tankers on the Turnpike, but to get a whisky tanker turning over in the middle of a residential neighborhood is uncommon."
Twitter users and Scotch fans spoke out about the unfortunate spill and loss of product.
