CINCINNATI -- Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was among the commuters who found themselves stuck in traffic on Interstate 275 after Duke Energy power lines fell across the highway Thursday afternoon.
He responded the way everyone in 2017 responds to inconvenience: Taking to social media.
"I'm driving (and) these power lines just fall down out of nowhere, bro, in the middle of the highway," he said in an Instagram story. "I almost got killed."
Further entries in his story showed the backed-up lanes of traffic and the dents in Jones' own car caused by the power line failure and subsequent crashes. All lanes of the highway were closed as crews came to clean up the mess.
"This **** crazy," Jones said. "Live wires down here. … I tell you, you got to count your blessings every day."
It took a little over an hour from the lines' estimated fall at 4:30 p.m. for I-275 to reopen in both directions, during which time Jones offered Duke Energy some customer feedback not fit for print.
There are @DukeEnergy OH-KY line crews onsite to remove line, hopefully in next 15 minutes, once it's de-energized. There are other utilities whose lines are also down that will need to be removed. We have notified them as well. https://t.co/E3Yrn50ygo
