COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – Drivers on Highway 85 through Commerce City saw something unexpected in the middle of the road at 112th.

A large piece of a wind turbine was left on the road, in the middle of the intersection.

It looks like an oversized diving capsule, but is a wind turbine housing – the center piece that crews attach the blades to.

The part is about 10 to 12 feet high.

Witnesses said it slid off a trailer.

Big tow trucks were brought in to move the turbine housing.
