A truck hauling beer and another one carrying chips crashed early Wednesday in Florida, spilling their contents and leaving Interstate 95 near Melbourne looking like, said one cop, a Super Bowl commercial.

"Neither driver was hurt, but you had Doritos and Busch beer all over I-95," Sgt. Kim Montes, a spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol, told NBC News. "That's like a Super Bowl commercial right there."

The southbound lanes of the interstate were closed for about four hours after a semi-tractor trailer carrying Anheuser-Busch beer and a Frito Lay box truck collided, Florida Today reported.


There were no injuries in the wreck, but the mess resulted in a total loss of the cargo.

"We had a front-end loader come out and scoop all of the beer and chips and pushed them to the right shoulder. We have two of the three lanes open now," said Kim Montes, spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol, according to Florida Today. "All of the products will be thrown away.”

The accident occurred at about 3:10 a.m. Wednesday when the beer truck swerved to avoid a vehicle after attempting a lane change and struck the chip truck, which was stopped on the side of the road, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The beer truck driver was ticketed for failing to maintain in a single lane.

Twitter users were amused.
