Shortly before 9 a.m., members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department, Posey Township Volunteer Fire Department and the Indiana State Commercial Vehicle Enforcement department were dispatched to the scene.
According to officials at the scene, the unidentified driver of the trash truck left a local fuel center and was attempting to enter the I-70 westbound on-ramp when the full load of trash apparently shifted inside the trailer, causing it to overturn.
Although the vehicle rolled over on the driver's side, the driver was not injured during the accident.
The driver told officials he was to deliver the trash to an undisclosed dump in Vigo County.
Deputy Jon Chadd told The Brazil Times traffic was initially allowed to continue using the on-ramp, but was temporarily stopped when Curtis Wrecking Service arrived to lift and roll the semi back onto its wheels. No damage estimate was available about the vehicle due to the ongoing investigation.
There was minimal fuel and oil leakage from the vehicle during the incident, but officials said it presented no driving hazards because first responders quickly contained it.
