Salmon swim across road in Washington state

Motorists this week were met with the unusual spectacle of dozens of salmon swimming across a highway.
The peculiar traffic hazard was captured on video along a flooded section of Highway 101.

According to fish hatchery specialist Alexis Leonard, the adventurous fish, which were trying to make their way upstream for the spawning season, came from the nearby Skokomish River.

"If they're lucky, it'll meet up with the creek on the other side of the road, if they're not they're stranded," he told CNN.

The video shows dozens of the fish splashing across the shallow water on the highway.

It remains unclear however how many of them actually managed to safely reach their destination.

Spawn till you die! I've seen that happen a couple of times.  It's super cool.

After she drove through them, I bet she parked up and walked back to retrieve the flat ones.
