Lego building blocks strewn across I-79 in West Virginia (NBC)
(NBC) -- Lego cleanup needed on highway 79!
Commuters on Interstate 79 in West Virginia faced at least an additional hour wait in traffic Sunday, WDTV reported. As drivers approached mile marker 117 in Harrison County, they saw thousands of tiny Lego building blocks scattered across the highway.
Firefighters and cleanup crews were there to pick up the pieces. Eric McClain, a firefighter on scene of the toy disaster, posted a photo of the highway littered with thousands of colorful bricks.
At least one person claimed responsibility for the spilt Legos. Tiffany Lantz posted on Facebook, "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." Lantz added an apology to those commuters stuck in traffic because of the Legos.
WDTV reported that traffic was down to one lane until crews could clean up the mess.
Turns out you really can build anything -- even a traffic jam -- with Legos.
