LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- At least one person has been injured after a waste collection truck drove off the road Wednesday afternoon.

The crash happened just before noon. WDRB photojournalist Matt English reported from the scene that the truck drove off the Shawnee Expressway and came to rest on Farnsley Road below.

A Shively police spokesman said EMS took two people from the truck to a hospital. He could not tell the extent of their injuries.

Employees of the company operating the truck said a tire blew out just before the truck left the expressway.
