MISHAP NEAR BLADES - Blades volunteer firemen are shown Tuesday morning at the scene of a truck accident on River Road near Blades. A truck carrying scrap metal turned onto its side after rounding a curve. Wayne Hill, a driver for Kroeger's Salvage of Seaford, said he heard a loud bang before the truck went out of control. The load must have shifted, he said. The truck ended up against a utility pole. The road was closed for hours while the clean up was performed and the pole repaired. A transformer on the pole was shaken loose from the impact. Related photo on page 4.
