Middletown – At 4:21 this morning crews from the Volunteer Hose Company of Middletown, along with New Castle County Paramedics, and Delaware State Police responded to Summit Bridge Road at Bethel Church Road for a rollover crash involving a garbage truck.

Upon arrival, crews reported that the truck was leaking fluids into a drain. This prompted a response from DNREC’s Environmental Response Team. Crews have been working throughout the morning to clear the scene.
