HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. – Hundreds of cans and cases of Coors Light spilled onto a Florida interstate Wednesday morning after several tractor-trailers collided.

Florida Highway Patrol Troop C shared photos of the crash, which happened in the southbound lanes of Interstate 75 in Hernando County.

The station reports that two semis were traveling on the interstate when one crashed into the back of the other while changing lanes. The first truck came to a stop on the outside shoulder and the second came to a stop in the outside lane, according to FHP.

Five semis in total were caught up in the crash in some way, along with a pickup truck. The fifth semi involved was carrying the beer, which crashed into a semi carrying concrete.
