Being chased by a giant pumpkin sounds like the ultimate nightmare, but this is a scenario that actually happened on the street in Arizona. According to USA Today, a 25-foot tall, 350-pound pumpkin was spotted rolling over cars on a road in Peoria until it got stuck on a streetlight pole for a brief moment. After a little struggle the pumpkin managed to break free again and rolled towards the unknown.

Witness Patrick Sparkes commented on what he saw:

City officials confirmed that the pumpkin made its escape from a Halloween display aimed to promote the Peoria Monster Bash, thanks to strong winds. One of the employees connected to the event commented:
