It was every driver’s worst nightmare.

A dump truck driver hauling scrap metal on a Cleveland freeway spilled the load when the vehicle overturned Tuesday, resulting in an estimated 100 flat tires, police said.

A portion of Interstate 77 was shut down for four hours so crews could clean up the mess of metal shards strewn across the highway and tow away cars with damaged tires, Cleveland.com reported.

Small scrap metal shards flattened the tires of about 100 vehicles on a Cleveland freeway, police said Tuesday.
