Two Garbage-Haulers Crash on Route 17 in Broome County
Broome County Emergency Services officials are reporting two separate crashes involving trucks hauling garbage early September 3 on Route 17.
The first crash involving a truck registered in Queens crashed on 17 West at the Mygatt Street Exit in the City of Binghamton at 4:29 a.m., spilling garbage and blocking at least one lane.
In that crash, in addition to the rig and garbage blocking the road, there were reports of possible diesel fuel spilling, so fire personnel were also summoned to the scene.
Minutes later, at 4:36 a.m., another garbage truck was reported rolled over on Route 17 West just east of Deposit. That crash also reported had lanes blocked.
The driver of the rig involved in the crash in Deposit was transported to the hospital according to dispatchers.
