Fish heads caused another traffic backup Wednesday in Seattle.
“For the second time this week, bloody fish heads have been found scattered on a Washington state highway – this time in rural Grays Harbor County,” according to news reports.
The incident occurred on Highway 101 about two miles north of the Pacific County line in Grays Harbor County. Troopers had to shovel the heads off the shoulder.
The first fish incident occurred around 6 p.m. Tuesday when a Washington State Patrol Trooper was dispatched to check out a report of a lost load causing a slowdown on northbound Interstate 5 at Northeast 145th, according to news reports.
When the trooper arrived, he “was faced with a pile of bloody fish heads spilled across several lanes of traffic.”
The officer was able to clean up the mess himself by using a shovel to remove the fish heads from the roadway. He scooped up the fish heads and moved them off the freeway, one shovelful at a time. It took approximately 10 minutes to clean up, according to news reports.
It is unclear exactly how the fish heads ended up on the freeway. No one was charged for the incidents.
No accidents or personal injuries occurred as a result of these incident.
As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I’m glad to hear that no injuries occurred as a result of this incident. I urge drivers to always secure the loads in their vehicles.
