There is possibly no greater pain than stepping on a Lego barefoot. Parents of children, and sometimes even the children themselves, all know the pain of a tiny plastic block stabbing in to the tender underside of their feet. It should be no wonder why drivers along a highway in West Virginia were cringing at a spill of Legos that closed a lane of traffic on Sunday.

As dangerous as they are to bare feet, Legos didn’t pose a threat of puncture to car tires. However, the spilled Legos on a cold, wet road did pose a risk of making a slippery road even more slick. As a precaution, local authorities closed a lane of traffic so that the toy bricks could be cleaned up.

There was no accident of a container truck that sent the tiny bricks scattering along the road, but rather it seems as if the Legos fell off of a family’s car. The mother of the child to whom the Legos belonged stopped to help clean up the spilled bricks.
