Garbage truck crushes 2 cars in Dartmouth after sliding on slippery street


HALIFAX – Nobody was injured Thursday morning in Dartmouth when a garbage truck slid down a slippery street and badly damaged two cars.

Just after 11:30 a.m., resident Wayne Morris said the garbage truck, which was trying to get up Berwick Street, started sliding on the ice and wound up crushing the two vehicles.

“We heard a large bang…and then we heard a buzzing sound,” he said.

“I happened to look out our bedroom window and saw the garbage truck on top of our neighbour’s car.”

Morris said he had a flash of fear about whether his neighbour was inside the vehicle, but both cars were empty.

A second vehicle is flattened by a garbage truck.

“It was totally flattened. The back end of the garbage truck landed right on top of it,” he said.
