Trash truck crash flattens Roxborough bus shelter, damages tree

    How does a trash truck flip over? Police haven’t quite determined yet what caused an Allied Waste Services truck to fall into a Roxborough bus shelter this morning, but Barbara Childs kind of saw it coming.

    She tells NewsWorks she showed up at the bus shelter at Henry Avenue and Walnut Lane this morning to find it flattened. She’d always wondered if she should be worried about the fast-moving traffic near the intersection.
