(KTVI) – A driver in Kansas City took road debris into his own hands.

FOX 4’s Nick Vasos in Kansas City was in the middle of his Morning Show traffic report, showing the buildup caused by a fallen ladder on I-435 near Holmes. Around 6:47 a.m., a driver stopped, got out of his car, and removed the ladder from the highway.

FOX 4 caught the entire incident live on-air. The man was not hit and caused no accidents for the cars that had to stop as he pitched the ladder off the road.
