Rogue angle iron causes flattened tires of vehicles on I-94

On May 25, 2016, at 5:03 p.m., the Wisconsin State Patrol responded to reports of numerous vehicles with flat tires on I94 eastbound between mile post 60 and mile post 62. (EAU CLAIRE COUNTY);

Troopers responded and located approximately 21 vehicles parked on the shoulder with flat tires scattered throughout that location.

Several tow trucks responded to the scene.

Troopers checked the welfare of all of the drivers and between the towing services and the assistance of the Troopers, all of the vehicles were removed from the shoulder by approximately 7:30 pm with the exception of three semi units which either had service trucks working on changing their tires or en-route to their locations at that time.

The cause of all of the flat tires was a square metal frame made of angle iron that had been lying in the roadway.

No crashes or injuries resulted from this incident.
