The incident reportedly occurred when the driver of the semi "failed to maintain his lane" near exit 45 on I-10 in Okaloosa County around 2:40am. The big rig tumbled onto its passenger side on the north shoulder, causing the 30 tons of cheap light beer to be thrown from the trailer. Fortunately, the driver only sustained minor injuries in the crash, though the beer wasn't as lucky. If you figure a 30-pack sells for roughly $18 a pop, that puts the potential loss at nearly $48,000.
It's unclear how much, if any, of the cargo was able to be recovered, or whether any of it will make it to its intended destination. But if you're in the Okaloosa County area, you may want to keep your eyes peeled for some deep discounts on Busch beer at your local watering holes in the near future.
