Review Photo/ERIC HRIN Workers try to free this dump truck following a crash Monday on Fallbrook Road in the Troy area.
TROY – Jack Seeley, a foreman with the state Department of Transportation, said the driver of a dump truck that crashed on Fallbrook Road outside Troy Monday was “real lucky.”… As people worked to tow the vehicle from the scene, the road was closed for several hours … Penelec area manager, said that the crash resulted in two customers losing power….
Seeley said the truck was traveling downhill, and was hauling material away from a gas well on Sweeney Road. The truck had “Bishop Bros.” on its door. It also had wording that said “residual waste.” When asked why the removal of the truck was taking as long as it was, Seeley said that workers had to be careful to not rupture its tanks…. Seeley said the truck was loaded with waste from a gas well and it had spilled on the ground as a result of the crash. He said the gas company would probably clean it up, though he wasn’t sure.
Hmmmm, probably clean up the spill? This doesn’t seem to be posted on DEP’s website either. If anyone finds a report on it or has any other information please let me know.
