A Florida highway has been shut down after a semitrailer carrying cases of Coors Light crashed and turned the roadway into a sea of beer cans.
The multi-vehicle crash occurred shortly after 6am in the southbound lanes of Interstate 75 about 30 miles north of Tampa, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The pileup began when one semitrailer clipped another while changing lanes, officials said. That forced other semis to brake, but one failed to stop and collided with a pickup truck and another one of the stopping semis.
The semi that failed to stop was filled with cases of the Silver Bullet beer. The beer truck then collided with another semi that was carrying concrete.
After the crash, the road was covered in concrete and cases of beer, troopers said. The Florida Highway Patrol shared photos of the scene which showed packages of Coors Light covering the interstate.
