Coors Light cans spill onto I-75 in Brooksville after crash involving 5 semis, 1 pickup truck

Four semi-trucks were involved in a crash in Hernando County, leading to cases and cans of Coors Lights scattering across lanes, bringing traffic to a halt during the morning rush hour.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, two tractor-trailers were heading south when one collided with the rear of another while changing lanes. Troopers said one semi ended up in the outside shoulder and the other came to a final rest in the outside lane. There are three southbound lanes in this area.

Two other semi-trucks and a pickup truck stopped behind the collision. However, a fifth semi-truck, carrying Coors Light beer, didn't stop and collided with the pickup truck, propelling it to the outside shoulder where it collided with one of the semi-trucks involved in the first crash.

The tractor-trailer continued moving forward and collided with another semi-truck, which had initially stopped and was transporting concrete.
