BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Florida Highway Patrol reported that two trucks collided early Wednesday morning about 3:10 a.m. on I-95 at Mile Marker 187 in Melbourne.
A semi truck carrying Busch beer, driven by Roberto Ferrer Rodriguez, 54, of Miami, was traveling southbound on I-95, in the right lane. Meanwhile, a Frito-Lay box truck carrying chips, driven by Zachary Basinger, 29, of Melbourne was stopped on the right shoulder in the southbound on I-95 lanes.
According to FHP, Rodriguez said he attempted to move into the center lane of I-95. Another vehicle was in the center lane and Rodriguez swerved back into the right lane and then continued onto the paved shoulder.
The front, right of the Busch beer truck struck the Frito-Lay truck, which then overturned, causing beer and chips to be spilled onto the roadway.
Rodriguez was ticketed for failing to maintain a single lane.
