RIDGE MANOR, Fla. – Beer drinkers in Florida are living a nightmare of which they can't escape.

The tranquility of a quiet morning was shattered after pictures surfaced of an overturned beer truck that had spilled its ice cold suds all over Interstate 75.

Tuesday's accident occurred just after 7:30 a.m. near the town of Ridge Manor.

According to WFTS in Tampa, a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman said the truck's driver was distracted by his dog.

No word on if the dog's name was Spuds Mackenzie.

Although no injuries were reported at the scene, it will be no surprise if beer drinkers mourn their fallen friends during Tuesday afternoon's happy hour.
