One Injured in Tully, NY, Garbage Truck Accident on Rt. 80

Tully, NY -- February 14, 2017, a driver was injured as the result of an accident in which his garbage truck crashed into a house off of Route 80.

Authorities responded to 4883 State Highway 80 near the intersection of Strong Road. Their preliminary investigations indicated that a garbage truck was driving down the roadway when it suddenly lost control.
