CHIPPEWA TOWNSHIP, OHIO -

A cemetery was damaged by a runaway garbage truck Friday afternoon.

Wayne County Sheriff Deputies were called out to the Easton Union Memorial Cemetery after a garbage truck parked nearby had a mechanical malfunction and rolled down sandstone steps into the cemetery.

The unoccupied truck continued through the cemetery crushing several grave makers.

Residents who may have family members buried in the cemetery are encouraged to check for damage and contact the Chippewa Twp. Trustees regarding the incident.
