Scrap metal from overturned truck flattens dozens of tires


CLEVELAND (AP) — Scrap metal from an overturned tractor-trailer has flattened dozens of tires on cars on an Ohio interstate.

Authorities said the accident happened Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 77 in Cleveland near Interstate 490, causing the highway to shut down.

No injuries were reported.

Cleveland police and fire fighters were on the scene along with the Ohio Department of Transportation, which asked drivers to take an alternate route to avoid that stretch of highway.

Cleveland police say those who experienced damage can file an online report with the agency.
