You're not going to believe this. If you got stuck in traffic this afternoon in Pinellas County with the shut down of I-275, are you ready to hear what caused the whole problem?
My normal 9 minute commute to the radio station from Feather Sound took over an hour, so I was curious. I figured you were curious too.
A lawn mower. Yes a lawn mower. That's what caused this whole mess causing delays all over Tampa Bay according to Laura Harris from ABC Action News.
