DENVER, July 22 (UPI) -- An overturned semi truck on an overpass in Denver spilled hundreds of beer cans onto the road below in a crash caught on camera.

The video shows hundreds of cans of Miller Genuine Draft raining from I-70 to I-25, where drivers swerved to avoid the falling cans.

Police said there were no reports of injuries from the crashed semi or the falling cans of beer.

Debris remained on both roads for several hours after the crash. A video posted to Instagram by user @cjh2337 shows cans of "free beer" littering the road on Interstate 70.

Both roads were fully reopened by 2 a.m., authorities said.
