A garbage truck was involved in an accident east of Madison on Tuesday just before the noon hour.

The garbage truck, driven by 20 year old Duncan Murdock Schmig of Minneota, was northbound on Highway 119. A 2021 Peterbilt tractor-trailer driven by 30 year old Anthony David Levitz of Spicer was southbound on 119. The garbage truck made a left turn in front of the tractor-trailer, which attempted to avoid the crash by moving left. The vehicles sideswiped each other, causing damage to the right side of both vehicles.

Levitz and his passenger in the tractor, 33 year old Ruben Lopez of Veblen, South Dakota, were taken to Dawson Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
