ST. LOUIS (AP) - Debris that apparently fell from a truck is being blamed for damage to several vehicles in St. Louis.
Police were called about 5 a.m. Monday to Interstate 55 after at least a dozen cars reported flat tires and damage to their undercarriages. Officials think the vehicles hit metal and concrete that fell from a truck.
Police arrived and the debris was removed, but the result was a significant backup during morning rush hour. No injuries were reported but at least one car went out of control while trying to avoid the debris.
