NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities are investigating an accident involving an overturned garbage truck in Brooklyn.

Fire officials say one person suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The accident occurred on Bushwick Avenue at around 5:18 a.m. Tuesday. No other vehicles appeared to be involved.

Television footage showed the truck lying on its side across the avenue.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the accident near Evergreens Cemetery was weather-related.

The National Weather Service says slick roads are causing treacherous conditions Tuesday morning.
