WILMINGTON (CBS) – A Wilmington road was down to one lane for a brief time during the Tuesday morning commute after it appears a truck dumped debris in the middle of the road.

It happened around 6 a.m. on Ballardvale Street near Target. Police described the area as a “large debris field.”

Pictures showed a mattress, chairs, and other pieces of garbage piled in the road.

Less than an hour later, the area was reopened after Department of Public Works employees cleaned up the debris.
