SALT LAKE CITY -- A construction crew was ready to pour a concrete driveway Friday afternoon when a worker pulled up and notified them of a possible bomb in a nearby intersection.
The workers checked out the item in the intersection of Country Club Drive and Berkeley Street. They said it had wires, duct tape and what appeared to be a timing device.
"I got kind of a creepy feeling, especially with the timer thing," witness Tom Wright said. "You don't know what that's set for, you know?"
They called 911, and the bomb squad sent in a robot to destroy the item. Investigators say the package was an intentional hoax.
