RICHMOND, Virginia – A video shot in Virginia showed a parade of semitrailers on a freeway that had been blocked off by police; there were no other cars, just semitrailer after semitrailer.
WTVR-TV is reporting Adam Hicks and a passenger were traveling on Interstate 64 in Richmond Saturday when they noticed something unusual.
One person in the video said the convoy started with a series of seemingly identical trucks: “We’ve seen at least 30 so far. Here’s a whole new set of trucks coming up.”
As the video goes on, their disbelief grows.
“I want to re-iterate the interstate is blocked off. No incoming traffic,” said his passenger, who was identified on Facebook as Joyce Ord. “…This is Interstate 64 in Richmond. No idea what’s going on. This is getting more and more bizarre.”
However, there was an explanation behind the mystery. It was reportedly the “World’s Largest Truck Convoy” and it was out to support Special Olympics.
The convoy is reportedly a one-day celebration that featured about 110 vehicles. The goal is to raise funds and awareness for the Special Olympics.
