BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. -

A man driving a semitrailer was ticketed Monday after sideswiping another semitrailer.

Troopers said Jesus Fernandez was driving north in the outside lane of Interstate 95 around 6:30 p.m. when he saw another semitrailer parked on the side of the road. Fernandez said he attempted to move over but there was traffic in the lane next to him.

Fernandez swerved back into the outside lane and his trailer sideswiped the semitrailer on the side of the road.

Fernandez's trailer, filled with 30,000 pounds of Red Bull, ripped open, spilling the liquid all over I-95.

Fernandez was ticketed for failing to maintain a single lane.
