Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Hundreds of local residents descended on a street in Thailand when an overturned truck spilled 80,000 cans of beer into the road.

''I went around the corner and could not keep control of the truck. I don't know how it happened. I think the road was slippy or because it was dark," the driver said.

The crash caused the truck's load of Leo beer to spill into the road, leading to chaos as hundreds of people rushed to take the cans from the roadway.

Police said the people who took the cans could face theft charges if they are identified by investigators.
