An explosion occurred at an elementary school in Bristol, Connecticut that severely damaged a trash truck and the wall of the school. The driver was compacting trash after picking it up from the school. The Bristol Police Department said the force of the blast was felt blocks away. When they arrived, they saw a gaping hole in the side of the trash truck, which had just collected trash at the school. As the truck was pulling away from the dumpster, and had actually cleared the building, an explosion occurred in the rear of the truck causing some minor damage to the building.
It was reported that no children inside the building were hurt when the blast happened, and the driver appeared to walk away with only minor injuries. The school’s crisis team was called in and took immediate action, relocating all of their students from the west end of the building towards other classrooms and areas of the building.
