    MIAMI — State troopers are looking for a charity to take thousands of shoes that were dumped on a Miami expressway, tying up rush hour traffic.

    Lt. Pat Santangelo says the Florida Highway Patrol received a call about the shoes Friday morning.

    [NEWSC] Mystery Shoe Dump
    Thousands of shoes were strewn across a highway in Miami Friday morning.

    Santangelo says he's not sure where the shoes came from. There were no signs of a crash and no one stopped to claim them. He says he hopes someone will take them because he doesn't want to send them to the dump.

    Workers using a front-end loader and a dump truck were able to quickly clear at least one lane by sweeping all the shoes to shoulder, but delays were expected until they could all be removed.
