Rollover on T-17

Steve Woodhouse

Marion County — An accident occurred at approximately 1 p.m. Thursday afternoon in which a garbage truck landed on its top. 

The accident remains under investigation. Chief Deputy Troy Fisher is still on the scene as of this post. Preliminary investigation indicates that a tire blew on the truck as it was rounding a corner, northbound on T-17, when the tire blew. The truck went on its side and went off the road, landing upside down. 

Fisher said the driver was not injured in the accident, which occurred approximately 1.5 miles south of the South Central Iowa Solid Waste Agency. Citations are expected. 

One tow truck was called in to get the truck off the side of the road. It was not strong enough and a second one was called in.

Look for more on this as more information becomes available.
