LEGO Block Spillage Forces Lane Closure On Interstate 79

Late in the afternoon on Sunday, those travelling on Interstate 79 in Harrison County, West Virginia, were treated to the rare sight of thousands of LEGO blocks covering the road.

Not everyone would have been pleased about the unusual occurrence however, as it forced the traffic down to one lane for about an hour while crews set to work cleaning up the colorful construction blocks!

We are assuming that a truck transporting LEGO somehow erred and ended up spilling the contents of its cargo all over the road, though there doesn’t appear to be any specific details about what happened.

One commenter on the WDTV article about the incident claimed to have seen it happen. He/she said a giant LEGO man at the wheel of a car made entirely from LEGO and ended up losing control of the vehicle. It crashed into the guardrail and exploded into thousands of pieces and apparently, “investigators are trying to reconstruct the scene, and the car.”

I just hope all those spilt LEGO blocks go to a good home and don’t just get dumped somewhere!
