Earlier this morning, a City of Independence Sanitation Department truck was involved in a single-vehicle rollover accident east of Independence while en route to the county landfill.
The three City employees occupying the truck have all been transported to Labette Health’s Independence Emergency Room for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
“Our top-of-mind concern at this time is the well-being of our team members who were involved in the accident, and our thoughts and prayers are with them,” said Assistant City Manager David Cowan.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the incident, and the City will conduct a full review as well.
No additional information is available at this time.
