25-foot-tall inflatable pumpkin escapes from Halloween display and rolls over cars

A 25-foot-tall, 350-pound pumpkin escaped from its display promoting the Peoria Monster Bash Thursday, sailing down the street and damaging two street lights.

Pumpkin owner Patrick Sparkes, with Big AZ Promotions, tells KPNX-TV that it took him 40 minutes to track the giant squash down.

Peoria officials say it wasn’t vandalism, but windy weather that sent the jack-o’-lantern on its trip.

Watch below. Thankfully no one was injured…except for the street and a few traffic lights.
