Busch jokes after truckload of its beer flows onto Florida highway

When it overturned, its load of Busch beer spilled onto the highway and shoulder.

An early morning crash Wednesday left thousands of cans of beer scattered on a Florida highway, and a SC man has been arrested.

But, hey, there's probably going to be great happy hour specials in Okaloosa County this week.

Michael Nolan Powell, 44, was driving a tractor-trailer at 2:40 a.m. when he failed to maintain his lane, according to an accident report. He was treated for minor injuries at the scene and is charged with careless driving.

Powell suffered minor injuries and was wearing a seat belt, according to the release.

Almost 60,000 pounds of beer spilled in the crash, which occurred around 2:40 a.m., the Orlando Sentinel reported.
