Five vehicles were damaged Monday morning when a garbage disposal truck struck an electic utility pole before crashing into several parked cars at a north Arlington apartment complex.
The truck was westbound at about 11:14 a.m. on NE Green Oaks Boulevard when if left the roadway just west of Collins Street.
The truck jumped an embankment and landed on a 2005 Ford Mustang and then hit four other cars parked at the Trinity Oaks Apartments at 811 NE Green Oaks Blvd.
The driver of the truck received first aid at the scene, but an emergency dispatcher in Arlington said he declined to go to the hospital.
Westbound traffic on NE Green Oaks from North Collins has since reopened.
