(Scroll down for video) People woke up to an odd scene in the streets of Russia, after a Pepsi storage facility collapsed, spilling thousands of gallons of fruit juice.

The incident unfolded earlier this week at the PepsiCo storage facility in Lebedyan.

A spokesperson for the company said that while two workers were in an elevator 100 feet in the air, the storage tank collapsed, spilling the content onto the streets below.

The real fruit juice quickly flooded the nearby streets, turning the roads into real fruit juice rivers. The juice eventually flowed into the Don River.

One person was injured as a result of the floods. Neighborhood residents recorded videos of the bizarre incident. One video shows cars driving and splashing juice around.

Another video shows a river of juice flowing into a wooded area. Pepsi told Officials that it plans to clean up the mess.

The company also urged residents not to drink the juice, but said that the liquid is harmless and will not cause damage to the environment.

The cause of the collapse is under investigation.
