Penn Yan Municipal workers and firefighters at the scene of Monday's crash.

A Feher garbage truck, unable to stop while coming down Sand Hill Road in Indian Pines Oct. 24, ran through the stop sign, crossed Rte. 54A, and laid over on its side in a parking lot opposite Seneca Farms, coming to rest against a utility pole.

Witnesses at the scene said the driver, Alvin Ryder, 25, of 2323 Mill Road, Clifton Springs, narrowly missed a vehicle on Rte. 54A. He was ticketed by Yates County Sheriff's deputies for defective brakes, failure to obey a stop sign, and not wearing a seatbelt.

Penn Yan Fire Dept., Volunteer Ambulance, Medic 55, and Municipal personnel responded to the scene along with Dresden Fire Dept. and an Ontario County Sheriff's deputy from the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit.

This is the third garbage truck to be involved in an accident in Yates County this year, and the second Feher truck to overturn.

This Feher garbage truck overturned at Rte. 54A and Ritchie Blvd. in Indian Pines after being unable to stop coming down Sand Hill Road Monday, Oct. 24.
