Truck Spills Load of Busch Beer on Florida Highway After Wreck

A tractor-trailer carrying a full load of Busch beer spilled its cargo all over a Florida highway during a wreck.

The truck was involved in the crash on Interstate 10 in Okaloosa County in Florida's Panhandle.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office posted photos on Facebook of the spilled suds and the overturned truck.

In a news release, the Florida Highway Patrol said 44-year-old Michael Nolan Powell of Simpsonville, South Carolina, failed to maintain his lane, resulting in the truck running onto the shoulder of the road before overturning. He was treated for minor injuries at the scene and is charged with careless driving.

"Thankfully only minor injuries which were treated on scene but the beer didn't fare so well," the sheriff's office post read.

Troopers said about 60,000 pounds of beer was tossed from the trailer.
