Five semi-trucks and one pickup truck were involved in a crash that left a portion of I-75 covered in Coors Light Beer.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, On Wednesday at 6:12 AM, two semi-tractor trailers were traveling southbound on I-75 near Milepost 296.
Troopers say the first semi-truck collided with the rear of a second while changing lanes, and both came to a stop on the outside shoulder and outside lane, respectively.
A third semi stopped behind the second after noticing no lights visible on the other vehicles.
Troopers say a fourth semi then stopped behind Semi #3 in a similar fashion and was followed in succession by a pickup truck that also stopped.
Then came a Coors Light truck that failed to stop and collided with the pickup truck, which was propelled to the shoulder where it collided with one of the semi-trucks.
The truck transporting Coors Light beer continued forward and collided with the fourth semi, which was transporting concrete.
The loads of both Tractor Trailers were spilled onto the highway, closing all southbound lanes and forcing traffic to be diverted onto SR-50, according to FHP.
Minor injuries were reported by the occupants of the pickup truck. The roadway has since been reopened.
