De'brie errywhere following a crash at Jerrawangala.. The truck was carrying 20 tones of cheese!! No one was injured

The truck driver suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

And if you were hoping to make a mozza on the sharemarket, today may not be your day. Bega Cheese shares have seen a 1.5% decline on Tuesday. Although this probably has nothing to do with the crash.

The whole thing is unbrielievable, let's hope it gets feta.

NSW Police is investigating the crash. Bega Cheese has been contacted for comment.

Other puns considered for this story included "halouming cheese shortage", "Bega's belief" and "god edam."
