A driver told police he had "mechanical issues" that sent his recycling truck veered off the road and into a tree in Hawthorne on Tuesday.

Goffle Hill Road off Grandview Avenue was temporarily closed while Citywide Towing used a heavy wrecker to remove the 2003 B&B Disposal dump truck, which crashed on a short embankment in front of a home shortly after 10 a.m.

There was no immediate word on the driver's injuries.

Hawthorne firefighters cleaned up a fuel spill. Meanwhile, borough officials arranged to have other two other trucks complete Tuesday's pickups on Wednesday.
