Arizona drivers get a scare from giant inflatable pumpkin.

A giant inflatable pumpkin making a bid for freedom was caught on video nearly squashing pedestrians and drivers as it rolled through the streets of Arizona. The footage shows the 25-foot-tall, 350-pound jack-o-lantern crossing multiple lanes of traffic in Peoria on Thursday before briefly getting stuck beneath a streetlight. Pumpkin owner Patrick Sparkes, with Big AZ Promotions, tells 12 News (KPNX-TV) ( ) that it took him 40 minutes to track the giant squash down. The faux gourd soon broke free, and continued its rampage another quarter mile — bouncing off of a wall, careening through parking lots, and finally stopping in a neighborhood where it again became stuck, local NBC affiliate 12 News reported. “We showed up and it wasn’t there and we spent the last 40 minutes driving around looking for it,” employee Patrick Sparkes told the television station.
