Drivers in one Pinal County town were taken by surprise by an electronic road sign that appeared to be praising Adolf Hitler.

According to an e-mail sent by Joe Pyritz, Communications Director with Pinal County, the sign fell victim to hacking, and as soon as the county found out, Public Works staff was sent out to the sign to cover it up, until the company that owns the sign could reprogram it.
