WORCESTER, Mass. – A Grafton man flipped a trash truck Wednesday after dropping off waste at the Wheelabrator plant in Millbury, Worcester police said.
The driver, a 54-year-old Grafton resident who was not named by police, allegedly failed to lower the liftgate on a truck owned by A.J. Letourneau Trash Recycling of Millbury after dropping off waste at Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. in Millbury. The truck took down overhead lines on Route 20 before crashing into the Grafton Street overpass and flipping onto its side, police said.
The driver was cited for failure to lower the liftgate and operating a commercial vehicle with an expired medical card, police said. A.J. Letourneau Trash Recycling will also be cited for allowing an operator to work with an expired medical card.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation was called in to inspect the bridge. The accident remains under investigation.
