CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Ohio Department of Transportation says they now know what caused about a dozen tires to go flat on Saturday.

About ten cars heading east around Dead Man’s Curve experienced the problem.

ODOT Spokeswoman Amanda Lee tells Fox 8 they believe a piece of steel on an Innerbelt Bridge seam was raised about a half inch, puncturing tires and causing them to go flat.

Lee says the seam has been repaired, and there have been no other reports of flat tires since.
