(KPNX/NBC) Halloween came early for drivers and pedestrians in Arizona as a giant, inflatable pumpkin emerged from a group of trees before bouncing through a busy intersection.
In the video captured Thursday, you can see a 25-foot tall, 350-pound orange jack-o'-lantern roll every which way and even across multiple lanes of traffic before it gets stuck beneath a streetlight pole.
It then brakes free and rolls off into the distance to enjoy its freedom.
After the pumpkin got free from the streetlight, it traveled about a quarter of a mile.
It bounced over a wall, rolled through a business parking lot and eventually landed in a neighborhood park.
City officials said that the pumpkin broke free from a Halloween display promoting a local party.
No one was injured in the great pumpkin escape, but it did cause damage to street lights.
