Transportation workers used dynamite to blow up a massive boulder that blocked traffic on Highway 50 for hours Tuesday.
Crews drilled holes and shoved dynamite inside the boulder to break it into smaller pieces.
The explosion, which sent a shot of electricity through the boulder before snapping it in half, was caught on camera by the California Department of Transportation.
