...even small chunks of lead can really hurt when it strikes with enough force. Luckily it seems there were no injuries reported and damage seems to be minor. The driver of the truck, Robert Herman, told KOMO he called 911 as soon as he realized what was happening.

“I’m looking back and then I see all these balls and I said ‘Holy s**t!’” Herman told KOMO.

Holy **** indeed.

Herman said he’s just thankful the truck didn’t lose the load while going fast on the freeway, where the ricocheting two-pound balls would have put many more lives at risk. He did not comment on whether or not losing his load early was a habit or if it had happened before.

Police closed the road and crews took several hours cleaning up the mess.

Yes, even a 22 caliber can hurt or kill.
