DETROIT (WWJ) – It was an unusual sight along westbound I-94 during the Thursday morning commute.

Tipster “Ed,” who called WWJ Newsradio 950 while he was stuck in traffic, says someone dumped a large and varied load of shoes in the right lane under Warren Ave., after West Grand Blvd.

“Men’s shoes, boots, women’s, different colors, different sizes,” he told WWJ’s Sandra McNeill. “I don’t know if whoever dropped them was collecting used shoes.”

Ed said it the shoes appeared like maybe they’d come from Good Will or the Salvation Army.

The shoes caused about a two-mile back up on the west side of the freeway, but they have since been taken away. The lane was cleared shortly before 9 a.m.

For the latest from the roads, stay with WWJ Newsradio 950 during Traffic and Weather on the 8s, 24-hours a day. Get more now on our real-time Traffic Page.
