Sewage truck crash might affect waters
An accident involving a sewage truck shut down eastbound Route 50 in Arlington for about four and half hours Sunday morning, and the spilled waste prompted county officials to warn people against contact with the waters of South Four Mile Run until at least Wednesday.
At about 7 a.m. at the intersection of Route 50 and Fillmore Street, a vehicle rear-ended a sewage truck and caused the truck to leak waste, county officials said.
Traffic in both directions was shut down until about 11:30 a.m., as police and fire officials contained the spill.
Because of the spill, police have advised Arlington residents and their pets to avoid the waters of South Four Mile Run from Columbia Pike south to the county line.
