Parts of a Florida highway resembled the aftermath of a rowdy college party after two semis carrying cans of beer and bags of chips collided.
According to 11Alive, parts of Interstate 95 were shut down for over four hours after the beer-carrying semi crashed into the back of truck stopped on the road’s shoulder, spilling cans of Busch beer and thousands of Frito-Lay chips across the highway. It took clean-up crews hours to sweep up the sticky piles of snack food debris before they could fully reopen the busy Brevard Country roadway.
While there are few things more depressing than wasting a good can of beer, unfortunately all of the scattered cans had to be discarded over safety concerns.
“We had a front-end loader come out and scoop all of the beer and chips and pushed them to the right shoulder,” Kim Montes, spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol, explained. “All of the products will be thrown away. They can’t take the risk of them having some type of internal damage.”
Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in the accident, other than a few snack lover’s broken hearts.
