Catastrophic LEGO Incident Leaves West Virginia Highway Strewn With Bricks

If you thought stepping on a LEGO with your bare feet was bad, imagine the scene in West Virginia, where a tote filled with the tiny bricks spilled across a highway and held up traffic for hours on Sunday. More importantly, it made imaginations run wild, wondering how that many LEGO could end up strewn across a highway on a snowy day.

On the local fire department’s Facebook page, one motorist and mom took the blame for the spill. The bricks were in a tote strapped to the top of her car, and fell off. She explained:

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.

Sry to anyone that got stuck in traffic

This being the Internet, fellow users weighed in with jokes and offers of replacement LEGO for the alleged upset child.
