SALINE COUNTY, Kan. — A rollover crash caused hundreds of cases of beer spill onto Interstate 135 in Kansas on the morning of Oct. 11.

Kansas Highway Patrol (KHP) said in a Facebook post that they responded to the call about the rollover, which was near milepost 79 in South Saline County, “shortly before 7 a.m.”

Photos from the KHP’s Facebook page show many cases of Budweiser littering the grass on the side of the highway.
