A County trash truck was sideswiped this afternoon while heading down the truck route by a car going uphill. The driver of the car left his lane and collided with the trash truck.
Los Alamos Firefighters used the jaws of life to remove the driver from his car. LAFD is transporting him to Los Alamos Medical Center with unknown injuries.
The gas tank on the trash truck punctured and leaked some fuel onto the ground where the accident occurred.
Hazmat is removing the fuel spill and the vehicles are in the process of being towed from the area.
Officials expect that by 3:30-4 p.m. the truck route will re-open.
