On Sunday afternoon, a highway in West Virginia was partially blocked (see what I did there?) when a few containers of LEGOs fell off the top of a passenger vehicle, sending the toys sprawling across the road.
A woman came forward on Facebook, explaining that the LEGO blocks were he son's and that a strap had gotten loose, allowing the containers to fall from the roof of their moving car. She apologized to everyone who was stuck in traffic.
The incident also spawned the greatest news article ever written. WDTV reported:
Around 5:15 Sunday afternoon, there was a roadway obstruction of LEGO blocks on I-79 around mile marker 117 in Harrison County.

 

Traffic was down to one lane until crews could clean up the mess.
