Spilled load screws motorists

| 11/7/2001

Quite a few Tucson-area motorists must have been upset after a truck spilled thousands of metal screws on Interstate 10. More than 30 vehicles had flat tires after running over the screws.

Officials say the trucker didn't realize the 50-pound box of screws had fallen off until a police officer pulled him over a few miles down the road. The driver was cited for having an unsecured load. The owner of the truck reportedly was Olympic Transport of Houston.
