(Scroll down for video) Cans of beer rolled around on a busy road in Florida, after a little dog distracted a truck driver.

A Budweiser beer truck overturned on the highway in Hernando County, spilling many bottles of Natural Light beer.

A spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol, said that the accident happened when the driver was distracted by his dog, which was in the cabin.

The accident occurred on Interstate 75 south of State Road 50, and no one was hurt, according to Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Steve Gaskins.

Malcolm Jamal Wilcox, 23, of Fernandina Beach, drove the truck when he struck the center median while he was distracted with the small dog.

The incident took place around 7:30 a.m., when Wilcox had drifted towards the shoulder of the road and he turned too hard to the left to correct the drift, according to the police report.

Wilcox, 23, was ticketed for reckless driving.
