Trash Truck Accident

On the morning of Tuesday, April 15, the driver of a large St. Louis Refuse truck was driving on Gasconade Street. Allegedly a car cut off the truck suddenly. In response, the truck driver braked and then swerved. The garbage truck lost control and crashed into a support column for Interstate 55. The garbage truck itself was mangled. While the Missouri Department of Transportation inspected the bridge and determined no damage was caused, the truck driver was taken to the hospital. Missouri requires the highest standard of care while driving, and this works to protect our community and citizens from dangerous accidents like this accident with the refuse truck. If the refuse truck had hit a pedestrian or even another car, this accident could have potentially resulted in loss of life.
