A passenger car and a truck carrying human waste collided near the intersection of College and Ashby avenues about 6:00 a.m. Sunday morning, according to Berkeley Police Department Lt. Andrew Rateaver.

The passenger car left the roadway and entered the property of the Wells Fargo Bank at 2959 College Ave. but did not hit the building, Rateaver said in an email. According to a BPD advisory issued about 6:30 a.m, nobody was injured in the accident.

Damage to the property was minor to moderate, according to Rateaver. BPD was notified of the crash at 6:09 a.m. and responded to the scene with five police cars shortly after.

After the collision, oil was discovered to be leaking from one of the vehicles. A portion of College Avenue between Russell Street and and Ashby Avenue was closed until approximately 7 a.m. while the roadway was assessed for hazardous materials, Rateaver said in the email.
