Nails fell off the back of a truck and damaged hundreds of tires on a Louisiana interstate.

Police shut down three lanes of traffic in New Orleans on Tuesday while crews worked to clean up the nails.

Local mechanics were swamped with tire repairs.

Some drivers didn't even know they had rolled over the nails until they saw the story on the news and checked their cars.

Authorities tracked down the driver who caused the spilled and cited him with an unsecured load.
