I-70 reopens after nails spill onto westbound lanes at Kansas River Bridge

May 5, 2011


The westbound lanes of Interstate 70 at the Kansas River Bridge were shut down Thursday morning after a pallet of nails fell off a truck bed and spilled onto the highway.

Kansas Turnpike Authority spokeswoman Lisa Callahan said the accident happened at 6:05 a.m. just east of mile post 202.

Callahan said at least four cars received flat tires before crews could close the highway to clear the scene.

I-70 re-opened just before 9 a.m.

No one was injured.

.....Yellow is behind, but catching up fast. Blue takes the lead, he's putting on speed. Red is behind, putting along. His Putt Putt motor keeps on humming.
