A garbage truck crashed into a home on West Hill Road in Deansboro Friday, creating a mess that shut down the roadway for hours.
One of the workers helping on the truck was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital with a shoulder injury.
WUTR-TV reports that the truck lost its brakes and then struck a utility pole before clipping a car at the intersection of West Hill Road and Route 12B.
After passing through the intersection, the garbage truck slammed into a home on the left side of Route 315.
No one was inside the house during the incident.
State Police are investigating the incident.
