Medical waste spill on upper Peach Street

Local News

Emergency responders say a broken strap inside a semi helped create a real mess on upper Peach Street.

It’s believed the strap was holding a container and when it broke, the container slammed into the truck door, breaking it open and sending debris all over near the Peach Street Walmart.

The debris included medical waste, but the truck company responded with the equipment necessary for the clean-up.  

Traffic was still able to move on Peach Street during the clean-up, which took about two hours.

Perry Highway volunteers assisted State Police in keeping things moving.
