In Maryland, an 18-wheeler truck overturned and in the process spilled hundreds of cases of beer.

According to the Huffington Post, the truck overturned on interstate 270 spilling 77,000 pounds of Budweiser in the process.

Maryland state police explained the cause of the accident, saying that the truck overturned while, “trying to avoid debris on the highway when it rolled over near the Frederick-Montgomery County line around 4 a.m. Thursday.”

The scene was chaotic, with hundreds of bright red Budweiser beer cases strewn across the highway and the shoulder. Unfortunately for commuters, the highway was closed during the morning rush while the beer spill was being cleaned, which was explained as an “extensive” process.

There is no word on how many cases may have “left” the scene unbroken.
