It happened at 4:37 p.m. on Greenfield Street Thursday.
According to police, the 2016 Isuzu dump truck had been driving too fast with a full load of garbage.
The truck veered to the right and flipped over, ultimately stopping in front of the Creative Minds Early Childhood Center. It sent a shower of junk into the street.
“I ran outside to see if I could help because I know CPR,” said witness Luni Maxime.
Remarkably, neither the driver nor his passenger were seriously injured.
Driver Anthony Bustillo, of Bridgeport, was arrested. Bustillo, 19, faces reckless driving and reckless endangerment charges. He’s due back in court March 12.READ MORE: New York Weather: CBS2’s 1/23 Sunday Morning Forecast
“We had witnesses that said the vehicle was quote-unquote ‘flying up the road.’ We did a critical speed calculation which determined the vehicle was traveling about 38 miles an hour,” said Capt. Robert Kalamaras of the Fairfield Police.
That’s unsafe on the curvy stretch of road, where the speed limit is 25 – especially in a truck loaded to capacity with junk.
CBS2’s Tony Aiello for the truck at a tow yard in Fairfield, and bumped into the owner of the local 1-800-Got-Junk franchise.
“How’s he doing and what was your reaction when you saw that video?” Aiello asked.
“The reaction was shock. He’s doing fine. He’s no longer my employee,” Chris Kirk said.
Maximi says the driver’s big concern after the wreck was his job.
“Actually he was worried about his job. He’s a young guy, and I told him, ‘don’t worry, you’re alive,” Maxime said.MORE NEWS: Bratt Helps Devils Rally For Win Over Hurricanes
