    Cans of beer spilled onto I-275 in Jacksonville Thursday afternoon after a sudden stop caused the load to break through the wall of a Budweiser tractor trailer.

    Driver Jeffrey Cork, 53, was forced to make a sudden stop after cars ahead of him had stopped due to slow traffic, according to a Florida Highway Patrol incident report.
