A truck used by the city in the snow removal effort overturned in a creek Monday morning. It happened at around 11:30 a.m. at Cherry Avenue and Valley Road Extended. The driver was not injured. There was no hazardous fuel spill into the creek. The truck was carrying a brine solution used for road clearing, and some of that did spill into the creek but there’s no harmful effect on the environment. Officials say the accident happened when the driver was attempting to turn around and did not see an embankment. (Photo from W.A. Hogsten, Charlottesville Fire Marshal)
