A house that was being moved fell onto I-485 in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Thursday—and Twitter couldn't help but crack jokes.

House blocking highway traffic

Well, here's something you don't see every day.

A house fell and landed lengthwise, blocking busy highway traffic in Charlotte, North Carolina.

According to Newsweek, a spokesperson for the North Carolina Department of Public Transportation said that the agency's:

"Incident Management Assistance Program (IMAP) team was dispatched to I-485 Inner near Moores Chapel Road (Exit 12) about 10:35 a.m. after learning of a crash involving a tractor trailing hauling a mobile home."

The home wreck was the result of the tractor-trailer carrying the mobile home colliding with another vehicle, causing the massive cargo to fall off.

Local news reporter Joe Bruno of WSOC-TV reported about the incident and shared a photo.

He tweeted:

"On scene of the I-485 wreck."
"Cars are slowing passing the house on the shoulder. All minor injuries."

Bruno added follow-up tweets with more information.

Hunter Saenz of WSOC-TV also posted photos from a different vantage point and tweeted:

"Chopper 9 is over a crash involving a mobile home that was on the back of a tractor trailer. We can see 2 cars that the mobile home appears to have fallen on."
"Another has bad damage to the front of its car. On 485 inner loop at Moore's Chapel Rd."

Social media users couldn't resist cracking dad jokes.

Who knew that a 1982 song by British ska and pop band Madness would find literal relevance in the future?

Twitter was just getting started.

The obligatory references to the Wizard of Oz were made.

To be fair, it's a legitimate concern.

The spokesperson added that officials with the North Carolina Department of Transportation anticipated the interstate to reopen later in the afternoon.

Now, that's life in the fast lane!
