A 60 year old Post Falls man was injured in a garbage truck crash North of Pullman on U.S. Highway 195 Thursday afternoon.
The Washington State Patrol reports that the crash occurred around 1:00 in Harlow’s Dip. Troopers say Richard Becker was driving the truck Northbound when a tire blew out causing the truck to roll into a ditch.
Becker was taken to Pullman Regional Hospital and then flown to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. An image in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News shows that the garbage truck is owned by Pullman Disposal and Recycling.
