Deputies: Kentucky driver ticketed after hitting garbage truck in Yates County

Deputies say a Kentucky man was ticketed and not seriously injured after sideswiping a Cardinal Disposal garbage truck on East Lake Road.

It happened on East Lake Road in the town of Milo Tuesday morning, according to deputies.




Ronald Reisig, 84, was traveling south when he failed to see the truck parked on the west shoulder of the road.

That garbage truck operator was out of the vehicle making a pickup. Deputies say the operator was unhurt.

After Reisig hit the truck, he struck a mailbox before coming to rest. He was taken to the hospital for an evaluation.
