A runner's foot was impaled by a nail purposely placed on a popular trail near Ashville, NC.
Since Saturday, 40 nails hammered into tree roots and logs have been found.
A crew is searching for nails on the trail by blowing leaves and searching with metal detectors. Some are 4 inch long galvanized nails that are sticking out a half- to 1 inch at an angle. Basically spikes deliberately placed and meant to hurt someone.
One person was hurt and another stepped on a nail that went through his shoe but didn’t hurt his foot.
Crazy that someone would go through all of the trouble to hurt random hikers and runners.
