If you were looking for a party to crash early Wednesday morning, I-95 in Melbourne, Florida, might have been a suitable alternative. 
 
That’s because a swarm of beer bottles and potato chips flooded the highway after a Budweiser truck and Frito-Lays truck reportedly collided. It happened just after 3:30 a.m. and no one was injured in the crash.
 
However, some commuters were probably late to work that morning.
 
A substantial cleanup effort briefly shut down the interstate. One video shared by local outlet WFTV showed a man using what appeared to be leaf blower to remove some debris from the road (watch below).
 
Roberto Ferrer Rodriguez, 54 – who was driving the Budweiser truck -- was ticketed at the scene for failing to maintain a single lane.
