Rochester Woman May Seek Settlement in Garbage Truck Mishap


The Rochester woman seen in a video getting knocked off a bench by a City garbage truck may seek a settlement from the city.

Nicola Hustleby tells 13 WHAM she was sipping coffee and waiting for a bus on South Avenue when the mechanical arm on the truck lifted the bench, instead of the trash can next to it.

It happened in July, but the video went viral yesterday.

Hustleby says she still has pain in her elbow. She says the driver asked if she was okay and bought her cigarettes and coffee.

He did not report the incident and has since retired.
