A garbage truck hit a light pole early Monday morning, knocking it over and puncturing its own hydraulic fluid tank.
Sand was used to contain the fluid spill, near Watt Avenue and Fair Oaks Boulevard. The accident happened in a parking lot, so traffic in the area was unaffected.
Investigators don’t suspect anything illegal happened, but that the crash was simply an accident.
The truck will be towed away. No one appears to have been hurt.
