UPDATE: Trailer Falls on Sysco Truck and Pickup
No one was injured in the accident.
A tractor-trailer unit, operated by Robert Dorr, 42, of Plainville, was making a right turn onto Mansfield Avenue when the load slid off the truck, striking a Sysco truck and pick-up truck, which were heading south on Mansfield Avenue. The load was a storage container. The load struck the trailer of the Sysco truck, causing minor damage, and landed on the front of the pick-up truck, driven by Karl Phillips, 41, of Taunton.
No one was injured in the accident, and no operators were cited. Traffic was detoured for approximately two hours while crews lifted the storage container onto a flatbed truck with a crane.
