A 12-foot tall utility spool blew into traffic in Orange Beach, Alabama on Saturday, striking multiple cars. The unwieldy spool was filmed by charter fishing boat captain Troy Frady on his cell phone. “I thought it was going to hit me,” he said.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident. Unfortunately, there’s now a giant yarn-related traffic jam on an Alabama highway.
