St. Clair County, MI—A motor vehicle collision (MVC) involving a garbage hauler and county truck occurred on Thursday, April 29, 2010, resulting in the hospitalization of two people, one of whom is a county employee. The injurious two-vehicle crash happened along Interstate 69, in close proximity to Riley Center Road in St. Clair County, Michigan, according to information provided by TheTimesHerald.com.
Reports stated a Canadian trash hauler was traveling westbound on I-69 when it smashed into the back of a St. Clair County Road Commission truck for unknown reasons. On impact of the 8:15 a.m. collision, the county truck was sent careening into the grassy shoulder on the right side of the interstate. The trash hauler, on the other hand, overturned into the median of the roadway and allegedly burst into flames.
St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department deputies, along with Mussey and Emmett townships fire, Tri Hospital EMS and Richmond Lenox EMS responded to the scene of the fiery truck crash to transport both drivers involved in the wreck to area hospitals to be treated for unspecified injuries. The county employee was reportedly flown to a Saginaw-area hospital via medical helicopter.
According to reports, the injurious accident marked the second instance in which a St. Clair County Road Commission became involved in a crash in the last month. A string of accidents involving Canadian trash haulers were also allegedly reported in recent times. According to St. Clair County Road Commission managing director Kirk Weston, “It is another example of the garbage haulers creating havoc for us.”
Investigations into the truck accident are expected to be underway.
