A semi-truck hauling Bud Light flipped over while traveling southbound on I-75 Tuesday morning, August 11.

According to WFTS, the incident happened near SR-50 at 7:30 a.m. after the driver, Malcolm Jamal Wilcox, claims his (#UpForWhatever) lap dog distracted him. Wilcox swerved to the right, overcorrected and hit the guard rail, which caused the truck to tip over, spilling "Crisp and Refreshing" Bud Light cans into the inside lane. 

Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson Steve Gaskins told WFTS, there is no restriction on pets in trucks and that Wilcox will probably receive a ticket for careless driving. 

No injuries were reported.
