WTOP online reports that an unfortunate Washington state trooper named Jaime Arnold had to shovel a lost load of “bloody fish heads” from several lanes of traffic on I-5 Wednesday:
A state Transportation Department camera shows him scooping the fish heads and moving them off the highway, even dodging cars entering from an onramp as he makes repeated trips to the side of the road.
