Stop That Pumpkin! Runaway Halloween Decoration Bounces Down Highway
Witnesses were in disbelief as a 25-foot-tall, 350-pound pumpkin rolled across multiple lanes of traffic, bounced around a business parking lot before coming to halt by getting stuck in a neighborhood park.
Workers with Big AZ Promotions, which owns the pumpkin, were shocked when they got the call that their inflatable was on the loose.
"I was so shocked to see that it was like bouncing like a basketball all the way down the road," Patrick Sparkes with Big AZ Promotions told 12 News.
The pumpkin, which was in front of a sports complex for festive decoration, is believed to have gotten loose due to high winds in the area.
No one was injured in the incident but it is reported to have damaged street lights.
Was it a trick or a treat? That depends on who you ask.
