Thousands Of Nails Stop Traffic On Missouri Highway
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. This technique comes right out of a James Bond movie, though it no doubt happened by accident. A truck in Missouri spilled boxes of nails on the highway - 200 boxes - each box containing 2,000 nails. KOMU-TV reports that traffic on I-70 was stopped during the cleanup, and nobody caught the truck, of course, because who could pursue it after it dropped 400,000 nails? You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
