A truck driver lost control of his semi-tractor trailer Wednesday while driving on a highway ramp, flipping the rig on its side and dumping thousands of cans of Bud Lite near Tempe, Arizona.

Authorities said the driver lost control while he switched to the transition ramp to the southbound loop 101, according to KPNX-TV.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the accident occurred around 10 a.m. The name of the driver has not been released and authorities said the driver was taken to the hospital, but his injuries are not life threatening.

The Arizona Department of Transportation tweeted “No crying over spilled beer” Wednesday in its continuous traffic updates.

The department also posted a photo on its website that showed the tipped semi with a giant pile of blue boxes and beer cans in the road and on the shoulder. Photographs of the scattered beer started making rounds on social media with many people volunteering to help clean them up.
