No Treat: Pumpkin Dump Snarls Detroit-area Traffic (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- 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 eastbound Interstate 696 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 police stopped the truck and the driver could be cited for having an unstable load.
