YONKERS, N.Y. -- Three Yonkers Public Works Department employees were slightly injured when the garbage truck they were riding in flipped over about 9:30 a.m. Thursday, according to the Yonkers Police Department.

The accident occurred when the truck was heading east on Hall Place and was exiting to Central Park Avenue when it flipped, said Lt. Michael Hanley.

"The turn is very sharp, and the truck just tipped over," Hanley said.

The employees, who were all riding in the cab, received minor injuries and were transported to Jacobi Medical Center for treatment, he added.

Investigators are looking at a blown tire as the possible reason for the accident.
