FARMINGTON HILLS, Michigan -- Road workers found themselves plowing pulp after a truck dumped a load of pumpkins on a Detroit-area freeway during the morning commute.
Hundreds of pumpkins were scattered Wednesday across several lanes of traffic on a highway in Farmington Hills.
Many of the pumpkins were pulverized as drivers passed through and WWJ-AM reports snow plows had to be used to clear what remained of pumpkins from the roadway.
Video from a traffic camera showed motorists slowly making their way through the pre-Halloween mess.
Michigan State Police Sgt. James Kemp tells the Detroit Free Press that one motorist had a smashed windshield, but no injuries were reported. Kemp says the truck driver could be cited for having an unstable load.
