OKALOOSA COUNTY, Fla. -

Some 60,000 pounds of Busch Beer in cans was poured all over Interstate 10 in Okaloosa County, Florida, early Wednesday morning in a mishap involving a tractor-trailer rig, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

This happened at about 2:40 a.m. near mile marker 45. 

According to the highway patrol, the rig was driven by Michael Powell, 44, of Simpsonville, S.C., who only suffered minor injuries.

The FHP reports that Powell was traveling in the outside lane when he "failed to maintain his lane," which led to his rig overturning and the cargo of beer to be scattered across the highway and ground.

Powell was cited for careless driving.
