An Enviro Waste truck driver will appear in court after causing a section of State Highway 29 to close yesterday.
The driver lost a bin off the back of his truck, which blocked the southbound lane of the highway near Belk Road in the Lower Kaimai.
The road was closed for several hours as a crane and digger were brought in to clear the debris.
Sergeant Wayne Hunter says the driver will appear in court, although the charge has not yet been confirmed.
“A man will be summonsed to appear in Tauranga District Court next month on a likely charge of careless use of a motor vehicle.”
A court date has not yet been set.
There were no injuries as a result of the incident.
