Scotch, like anything worth consuming, is pretty dangerous around an open flame or anything that creates sparks. So when a truck carrying 6,000 gallons of it hit a car in New Jersey and overturned on Tuesday, it went up pretty quickly.

Authorities say the truck was in a mixed residential and commercial neighborhood when the driver tried to navigate a turn and clipped a parked car. The hit was strong enough to overturn the truck, but the driver was able to escape serious injury. No homes were damaged, so it looks like the only casualty was the sweet, sweet Scotch. Somewhere, Ron Swanson is crying into his mustache.
