Truck overturns on New Fairfield road

April 8, 2019

NEW FAIRFIELD — An overturned truck shut down part of Route 39 for several hours on Sunday.

Emergency personnel responded to the accident in front of ICONS Sports Bar & Grill around 8:05 a.m.

Roads were blocked as responders addressed an oil spill from the truck’s hydraulic system and figured out how to upright the vehicle.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection was notified about the oil spill and responded to the scene.

Two rotators from Modzelewski’s Towing & Storage were used to lift the truck upright.

No injuries were reported, and the roads were reopened around 1 p.m.
