Hundreds of pumpkins were scattered Wednesday across several lanes of traffic on eastbound Interstate 696 in Farmington Hills.

Many of the pumpkins were pulverized as drivers passed through and WWJ-AM reports snow plows had to be used to clear what remained of pumpkins from the roadway. Video from a traffic camera showed motorists slowly making their way through the pre-Halloween mess.

Michigan State Police Sgt. James Kemp tells the Detroit Free Press that one motorist had a smashed windshield, but no injuries were reported.

Kemp says police stopped the truck and the driver could be cited for having an unstable load.
