Crash Leaves Beer Strewn Across I-75 In Florida
A truckload of Coors Light was strewn across Interstate 75 during an incident in Florida, Wednesday.
The Florida Highway Patrol shared photos of the sudsy packages covering the roadways, along with the semi-trucks damaged in the incident. The scene unfolded when one semi hit another while changing lanes, causing both vehicles to come to a stop.
Two additional semi-trucks and a pick-up truck came to a stop behind the vehicle in the outside lane, then a fifth truck carrying the cases of Coors Light beer plowed into the row of stopped vehicles, according to troopers.
The Florida Highway Patrol shared a video of the beer spill on social media. Beer covered a significant portion of the interstate.
One of the trucks was carrying concrete, sending a mixture of concrete and beer spilling out onto the road. There were no significant injuries in the pile-up, with just one driver reporting minor injuries.
The incident comes amid rumors of an impending beer shortage, making a stressful year even worse. Breweries dependent on raw carbon dioxide from Jackson Dome are seeking out other sources of carbonation for their beers due to contamination at the site.
