ANNA, TX -- A truck carrying nails loses its cargo Tuesday night, forcing police to shut down Highway 75 north. Traffic came to a standstill as nails littered the highway for miles.
It happened just after 6 p.m. at the FM 455 exit in Anna. Police say a semi traveling northbound somehow lost its cargo load, spilling roofing nails onto the road.
TX-DOT, fire, and public works crews combed the highway, trying to pick up the nails in the dark. A street sweeper was also brought into help.
Traffic was diverted for about mile north of Anna in what became about a three-hour ordeal. Traffic was reopened about 9 p.m. Tuesday.
