Trash truck accident closes road in Johnson

Posted: Updated:

A portion of Route 100C in Johnson was covered in trash Friday.

Police say a tractor trailer hauling waste to the Coventry Landfill flipped over and lost its load around 2 p.m.

Fire officials say the debris was quickly contained and that the accident did not create any environmental problems.

"It did a side roll onto the highway and slid off the roadway, so it was completely on its side dumping its load through the top of its compartments," Johnson Fire Chief Arjay West said.

The Johnson Fire Chief says the bulk of what was spilled was dry waste.

The scene was cleaned up and back open to traffic around 9.
