On September 3, 2020 at approximately 4:34 a.m., New York State Police at Deposit responded to the report of an overturned refuse trailer on State Route 17 in the town of Deposit.  Troopers located the truck blocking both westbound lanes.  An investigation revealed that the truck was traveling west when it traveled off the roadway and into a ditch, tipped on its side and lost all of its contents.  At approximately 7:17 a.m., the passing lane was reopened. 

The operator of the truck, Danny L. Robertshaw, age 57 of Elmira, NY was transported by Eastern Broome EMS to Wilson Hospital for an evaluation. 

No other vehicles were involved and no one else was injured.  The NYS DOT and a NYS DEC Spill Response team also responded to the scene.
