At least a dozen drivers stuck with flat tires after hitting metal debris from tow truck on I-45


HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- At least a dozen drivers were left stranded with flat tires and damaged cars after hitting a tow bar that fell off a tow truck onto I-45 before the North Loop.

It happened just before midnight.


Several people with their hazard lights on were parked on the side of the freeway with flat tires, waiting for help.

ABC13 spoke to one man, Cody, who was changing his shredded tire at a nearby gas station. He was on his way to the airport when he had a blowout.

Cody said he hopes he only has to pay around $200 for a new tire and that the damage isn't worse than he can see.

Police helped several stranded people, including a family on the side of the road with a sleeping baby.

No one was injured.
