A beer spill truck crash has closed southbound lanes on Interstate 95 for several hours. The accident caused thousands of Coors Light cans to spill onto the highway. This spill is the result of a crash between five semitrailers. Thankfully, no one was injured, but it’s still unfortunate to see hundreds of cases of beer spilled onto the roadway.
Beer spill truck crash causes thousands of Coors Light cans to spill across the road
The crash happened on a Florida interstate, sending hundreds of Coors Light cans flying across the road. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash happened in the southbound lanes of Interstate 75 in Hernando County. The crash involved two semi trucks that were changing lanes when one struck the back of the other. The first truck came to a stop on the shoulder, while the second truck was stuck on the outside lane. Thankfully, the crash only caused minor injuries to the occupants of the pickup truck.
The beer cans were left spilling over the road in cardboard cases. They were not transported to local liquor stores, and they were left to rot on the side of the road for an hour. There have been other semi-truck incidents in the past that have resulted in the contents being dumped on the roadside. In addition to beer, other products have spilled onto the highway. Others have included chocolate, TV dinner, and hot dog filler. Fortunately, emergency crews prefer not to have to clean these spills on the roadside.
Beer spill truck crash caused by five semitrailers
Five semitrailers involved in a beer spill crash have shut down a Florida highway Wednesday morning. The crash took place at about 6:12 a.m. in Brooksville. The trucks crashed into one another, with two coming to a stop in the outermost lane and three more stopping behind the pickup truck.
Several pictures of the incident have surfaced online, showing beer cans and boxes spilled across the road. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that there were only minor injuries. According to the Tampa Bay Times, the crash involved two semitrailers, with one truck being a tractor-trailer.
After the crash, all lanes were closed for several hours, but a few hours later, the highway reopened. Crews were still working on the highway to clear debris, but the highway was eventually open to normal traffic.

A semi-tractor trailer carrying Busch beer crashed into a truck carrying Frito Lay snacks. The driver of the Frito Lay truck was experiencing vehicle problems when the accident occurred. As a result, the Frito Lay truck overturned and spilled beer all over the interstate.
Two southbound lanes were closed at the Marineland exit following a beer spill. The truck driver was ticketed for failing to maintain a single lane, but no one else was hurt. The cleanup efforts were hampered by dense fog.
The Florida Highway Patrol said that two trucks carrying beer and Frito-Lay snacks collided on Interstate 95 early Wednesday. The crash caused the southbound lanes to be shut down for four hours. A cleanup crew was called in to clear the spilled beer from the highway.
