VIDEO: Utility pole stops runaway trash truck from plunging into pond

HARWICH – If it wasn’t for a Verizon pole this disposal truck would have ended up in Long Pond. The truck was picking up rubbish at the top of Daisy Street  when somehow the emergency break let go and the vehicle rolled down the hill hitting a pole at Sequattom Road.  The crash happened Monday around 11:30 a.m.  The beach access path to Long Pond is right across from where the truck stopped. The Verizon pole will be replaced and the roads around the area will be closed for sometime.
