OKALOOSA COUNTY — A semi-truck overturned Wednesday morning, spilling thousands of pounds of beer onto the roadway.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Michael Powell was headed west on Interstate 10 in Okaloosa County when he drove onto the north shoulder, the truck flipping onto the passenger side. This resulted in about 60,000 pounds of Busch Beer being thrown from the truck.

Powell sustained only minor injuries, the Sheriff’s Office said.

While this delivery has been canned, Busch isn’t taking matters lightly on Twitter.
