It wasn’t a typical commute this morning along the Southwest Freeway.
Drivers encountered scrap metal on the busy roadway at Highway 288 heading into downtown, which unfortunately, led to numerous cars getting flat tires.
Some 19 vehicles were disabled after running over the debris, according to ABC 13.
