Legos spilled on a highway in West Virginia on Sunday, causing traffic backups for a few hours.

Around 5:15 Sunday afternoon, there was a roadway obstruction of Lego blocks on I-79 near mile marker 117 in Harrison County.

North Central and Central WV Working Fires posted a photo of the clean up on Facebook. A woman, who commented on the photo, claimed responsibility for the Legos:

“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. Sorry to anyone that got stuck in traffic.” – Tiffany Lantz

Traffic was down to one lane until crews could clean up the mess.
