Waste truck driver seriously hurt


A waste disposal truck driver was seriously injured in an accident Wednesday afternoon at the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company construction site, a company spokesperson said.

Authorities earlier had reported an adult male was taken to a hospital after an explosion was reported at the campus in north Phoenix, authorities said.

“No TSMC employees or onsite construction workers have reported any related injuries. There was no damage to our facilities,” according to a statement issued by TSMC Arizona.

“We are working closely with local authorities. This is an active investigation, and no additional details can be shared at this time.”

Firefighters from multiple departments responded to a reported hazardous materials call on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Phoenix Fire Department.

Units from the Phoenix, Glendale and Daisy Mountain fire departments were dispatched to TSMC, near Dove Valley Road and 43rd Avenue, about 2:30 p.m., according to Phoenix fire officials.

The call was made as a result of an explosion at the plant, according to the Phoenix Fire Department.
