MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Beer and chips are usually considered a good thing when you’re watching the game or hanging out at a backyard barbeque.

They’re not such a great thing when they are all over the highway.

Wednesday morning a truck carrying Busch beer and another carrying Frito Lay chips collided, spilling them both along Interstate 95 near Melbourne.

Kim Montes, with the Florida Highway Patrol, said Zachary Basinger had stopped his Frito Lay box truck on the right shoulder.

Roberto Ferrer Rodriguez of Miami told troopers he was trying to move his beer truck into the center lane but saw another vehicle and swerved back into the right lane. His truck struck the chips truck.

The Frito Lay truck overturned. The beer and chips spilled onto the highway. Traffic backed up as troopers closed the road while clearing the debris.

Rodriguez was ticketed for failing to maintain a single lane.
