Some folks traveling along Route 422 to Route 222 in Wyomissing, Berks Co., on Tuesday found themselves on an unexpected shopping trip for new tires.

At least two drivers hit a piece of scrap metal on the highway, causing their tires to flatten.

The drivers managed to pull off to the side of the highway before the Broadcasting Road interchange and call for help.


Responding officers were able to remove the piece of scrap before any more damage was done. They were unsure whether there were any more victims.
