Sewage Truck Crash Causes Stink In Pembroke Pines
PEMBROKE PINES (CBSMiami) – Having your day ruined by your truck tipping over stinks, but in Pembroke Pines Monday afternoon, the driver of a tanker truck ruined his day, the day of people who live near the accident, because the cargo he lost in the crash really stinks, and it ended up in people’s lawns.
The truck is operated by All Star Recycling and Toilets, a West Palm Beach business that makes a living sucking human waste from porta-potties.
The truck apparently tipped over shortly after 2 p.m. in the 1400 block of NW 92nd Avenue, and in the process spilled about 100gallons of sewage into the street and the lawns of nearby homes.
From Chopper 4, the grey mess spread around the truck, as police cordoned off the truck and the spill to keep people away.
Firefighters also built earthen berms to keep the flow away from storm drains and a nearby canal.
The name and condition of the driver was not immediately known, nor was the cause of the accident. The company was sending a second truck to aid in the cleanup.
