Truck flips at muddy Dougherty County landfill

Posted: Updated:

The recent wet weather has left the Dougherty County landfill muddy and treacherous for the big trucks that go in and out daily.

Tuesday morning a dump truck backing up with it's dump body in the air tipped over and landed on top of this landfill bulldozer.

No one was injured.

The red clay at landfill is a muddy mess,  making it a challenge for truck drivers to go up and down that 80 foot tall center hill.

"It gets slick so we take measures to help the trucks maintain access," said Dougherty County Solid Waste Director Scott Addison said.  "Clear off the mud and put sand down on the roads to help access in and out."

Landfill officials say they're waiting for the bulldozer to be checked for damages before getting an estimate on what it will cost to repair.
