Traffic delay in Atlanta caused by Braves foam tomahawks that fell from a truck

It’s not nearly as weird as the runaway cattle that snarled traffic in Johnson County last month, but drivers in Atlanta had a headache on Wednesday.

The cause: Atlanta Braves foam tomahawks.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, there was a traffic delay Wednesday on I-75 north of Atlanta that was caused by foam tomahawks that fell from a truck. Two lanes were closed for almost an hour, Georgia Department of Transportation officials told the Journal-Constitution.

This (naturally) led to some jokes on Twitter:
