Lego spill temporarily closes Interstate 79!

"I saw this happen. A giant lego man was driving a car made out of legos, lost control, hit the guardrail, and exploded into a thousand pieces. Investigators are trying to reconstruct the scene, and the car."

It is a company in the UK that sells slippers and umbrellas, that sort of thing. Not sure what the meaning is in this context though? Same as Durango, I am sure they are not talking about a load of LEGO bricks falling out of some slippers strapped to the top of a Mexican State? But I have no idea what the meanings are in this particular case?

All these poor little Lego pieces
I saw something similar but at a smaller scale one morning when going to work: in the street a few dozen Lego parts, most already damaged by passing cars. I didn't try to salvage some, as it was rather dangerous to go on the road picking parts... (even if it was in a city street and not a highway like in that article)
With a few luck, after that story is relayed everywhere, something will be organized to donate some Lego to the kid to replace the lost...

's/dumb/not very intelligent, judging by the idea and the subsequent FB post.../'
But hey. Bad stuff happens. Not sure what I would have thought if I'd been driving down 79 right then. :)

and tried to save as many pieces as they could!
LOL! I can just imagine dodging cars and scattering all over for the bricks!
You've fallen for one of the classic Blunders! the most famous of which is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this, Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!!!

Not handbags and slippers
Yeah, I am in no doubt this is what she was referring to. I am sure no one would not stick a bag on top of their car, unless it absolutely crammed full. You can almost always find a spot for a bag to fit. Most likely a poor job anchoring it to the car or a strap failure...
Lesson of the day: (states the obvious) Don't put your LEGO on top of your car/SUV... Totally not worth it
