LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Crews cleaned up a spill after a pickup pulling a trailer lost its load of nails. Eastbound lanes were stopped for around an hour as they hook the trailer up to another truck.

The incident is on S. Loop 289 in front of the Science Spectrum in the eastbound lanes.

TxDOT was called to investigate the damage to the concrete barrier and a street sweeper has been called in to clean up the nails.

Traffic is moving slow for motorists in both directions on the Loop.

Avoid the area if possible until the scene is cleared and cleaned.
