Police: Man clips trash worker

SALEM — Police say a motorist who was upset that a trash truck was blocking Balcomb Street yesterday morning went to pass the vehicle on the right and struck one of the workers in the process.

Police received an 8:02 a.m. report of the road-rage incident and responded to 50 Balcomb St., where they determined that a man driving a Ford Explorer had first backed into the trash truck, then sped past the vehicle on the right, striking the arm of a trash worker who was on foot, Lt. Scott Englehardt said.

The driver then fled the scene.

The worker was not hospitalized.

Police were seeking a warrant for the driver of the vehicle on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, leaving the scene of a property damage accident, and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, according to the incident log.
