Legos spill on highway: An 11-year-old boy was likely very upset after his Legos spilled onto a highway in West Virginia, closing down at least one lane of traffic.
A highway in West Virginia was closed down Tuesday after hundreds of Lego pieces spilled on the asphalt.
Clean up crews were deployed to sweep up the colorful, plastic cargo in Harrison County, West Virginia, reported WDTV in Clarksburg.
The Legos, which belonged to an 11-year-old boy, were dropped on accident from the roof of a car that was carrying the toys, according to CNET.
“Traffic was down to one lane until crews could clean up the mess,” WDTV reported, referring to the closed highway, Interstate 79.
CNET reported that Facebook user Tiffany Lantz claimed responsibility for the spill.
“Those legos belonged to my 11 yr old son they where in totes strapped to the top of the durango they fell off strap came loose he cried it seemed like forever but I tried to recover as many as I could cause I don’t have the money to buy him anymore (sic),” she said in a Facebook posting. She added: “Sry to anyone that got stuck in traffic.”
One Facebook user pointed out that the young boy probably isn’t handling it too well.
“There is some little boy who will be very upset when they get to their destination to find his legos gone!” wrote user Abigail Jones Priest, who described the spill as “epic.”
