DeKALB – Two separate motor vehicle collisions occurred Thursday morning on North Annie Glidden Road, according to DeKalb City Police and Fire Department. The road was closed briefly for major clean up and towing of vehicles, according to DeKalb Police Sergeant Sonny Streit.

At approximately 7:45 a.m. Thursday, police arrived at a collision that occurred near North Annie Glidden Road and Crane Drive, Streit said. The accident was caused by a driver heading south failing to reduce speed and was given a citation.

A short time later while police were on the scene, a garbage truck backed into a vehicle in the 600 block area of North Annie Glidden Road. The garbage truck driver was not issued a citation at the scene but will receive one later for improper backing, according to Streit.

Streit said no one was transported to the hospital after either incident and no civil property was reported as damaged.
