Five-semi wreck spills concrete and beer all over I-75


A wreck involving five semi trucks and a pickup left a mess of beer and concrete all over Interstate 75 in Florida on Wednesday morning. 

The accident happened on September 21st at 6:12 a.m. in Brooksville, Florida. 

According to 10 News Tampa Bay, the chain reaction crash began when one semi truck collided with another while changing lanes on southbound I-75 at mile marker 296. The two rigs then came to a stop in the outside shoulder and outermost lane. Two more semi trucks and a pickup truck then stopped behind the semi truck in the outside lane, but a fifth semi truck carrying beer failed to slow for the stopped traffic and collided with the row of trucks.
