Low limb snags truck on Garfield Street
A tractor trailer moving van got caught up in a tree limb on Thursday morning, causing the limb to snap off and lodge between the cab and trailer. The accident occurred shortly before 11 a.m. on June 20, when the truck was traveling east on Garfield Street, a residential side street. The driver edged the truck over to the left hand side of the road to pass parked vehicles on the right, but could not clear the low hanging limb overhead.
Police closed the road while crews from the Department of Public Works use chain saws to remove the tree limb from the truck. No one was injured in the accident and there appeared to be minimal damage to the truck. The tree, however, lost a limb in the mishap.
