We’ve all been there… driving along on the highway when you see the break lights start up ahead with all the cars slowing to a halt. NOOOOOOOOO!!!! Sometimes it’s nothing, other times it’s a terrible accident stopping traffic for hours.
Which is what happened on I-70 in Colorado last weekend. There was a big snow storm causing a bad accident where a tractor trailer jackknifed blocking all lanes, causing a 10-mile 5 hour back up. Ugh. Luckily no one was hurt in the accident.
There’s not much you can do in that situation so a group of people decided to make the most of trying to turn things in a positive direction. There was a bluegrass band named Elk Range in one of the vehicles who decided to set up their instruments on the side of the road and play music for everyone who was stuck. People were singing and dancing away having a great time.
It might not have fixed the traffic but I’m sure it lifted people’s spirits a little bit. The video is great, you can watch it here.
