There’s no use crying over spilled milk, but what about spilled beer and chips?

A crash in Melbourne, Florida, involving two trucks left beer and chips scattered along I-95 and closed southbound lanes for more than three hours.

At about 3:30 a.m., a truck hauling Busch beer attempted to move to the center lane to give a stalled Frito-Lay truck in the right shoulder room, according to News 13. But as the beer truck driver shifted lanes, he was blocked by another vehicle and swerved back into the right lane, striking the Frito-Lay truck.

As a result of the crash, the Frito-Lay truck overturned and the beer truck was cut open, leading the content of both trucks to spill into the highway.

No injuries were reported, but the Busch truck driver was ticketed for failing to maintain a single lane, according to Click Orlando. The roads were cleaned and reopened just before 6 a.m.
