MOUNT HOPE - A garbage truck rolled down a hill and spilled trash onto a yard in Fayette County.

Police said that it happened at around 9:00 a.m. Tuesday.  Officers said the driver was picking up trash when the truck started to roll down Colorado Street in Mount Hope and went right over a wall. 

The accident happened right outside of Paula Walton's house. She said she was startled to hear a rumbling noise this morning and find the truck teetering over the wall leading to her yard. "I was scared," she said. "I was shaking like a leaf."

Walton said part of the wall was damaged, but her house and yard is fine.

No injuries were reported.
