A truck fell off the wharf in Car­bon­ear Mon­day night, June 19.

First re­spon­ders re­ceived a call at around 7 p.m. and ar­rived on the scene of an ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing a truck that had tipped off the wharf and into the water.

There were no in­juries, as the driver, who was not on the scene at the time, was not in the truck when it fell.

On­look­ers told The Compass that the truck was plac­ing a float­ing wharf in the water when it tipped over and fell. Hy­draulic fluid was also seen run­ning along the hill lead­ing to the wharf.

Simms Garage ar­rived shortly af­ter to pull the truck from the water, a process that took about 30 min­utes.

The wharf suf­fered mi­nor dam­ages to the side, and fuel socks have been placed in the water to re­move any ex­cess flu­ids from the truck out of the water.
