Yikes! Man jumps between I-12 traffic to remove large piece of debris
BATON ROUGE - A man was spotted removing a large, unidentified piece of debris from a busy interstate after it nearly caused several accidents Friday afternoon.
The obstacle was first spotted on I-12 near the Drusilla exit just before 4 o'clock. Several cars had to swerve around the debris, which appeared to be roughly the size of a bathtub.
Looks like a fridge? I-12 West at Drusilla. Someone JUST cleared the roadway. pic.twitter.com/pLNOQB1j32— Jordan Whittington (@jwhittingtonBR) July 5, 2019
After several close calls, a man who pulled over along the roadway ran into the obstructed lane and yanked the item off the interstate. The man was then seen loading the item into the back of his pick-up truck.
It's unclear how the debris ended up in the roadway. The blockage was cleared before it could be reported to police.
