"A bit of creativity went awry Tuesday when a mannequin dangling on a ladder from a jewelry store's billboard was mistaken by some Route 95 drivers as a worker in distress.
The billboard, located on the western side of Route 95 just south of Route 37, was put up by Baxter's Fine Jewelry of Warwick with a picture of sparkling ring and the line: "Our diamonds are not out of reach."
Unfortunately, southbound drivers on the Interstate saw only the back of the sign and the silhouette of what looked like a worker hanging onto a ladder that was attached to the sign which rises about 35 feet above the ground.
Less than an hour after the mannequin was put in position, Warwick Police and Fire started getting phone calls from worried drivers."
