Back page: Giant runaway pumpkin frightens drivers

PEORIA, Ariz. — Halloween tricks came early for some drivers and pedestrians in the Phoenix area when a giant, inflatable pumpkin bounded down the roadway in high winds. A 25-foot-tall pumpkin escaped from its display promoting the Peoria Monster Bash Thursday, sailing down the street and damaging two street lights. Pumpkin owner Patrick Sparkes, with Big AZ Promotions, tells 12 News that it took him 40 minutes to track the giant squash down. Peoria officials say it wasn’t vandalism, but windy weather that sent the jack-o’-lantern on its trip. No one was injured, though the street lights and the pumpkin needed a few repairs.
