A delivery truck headed down-Island on State Road in Vineyard Haven crashed and went into a ditch when the brakes failed just before noon on Friday, spilling water bottles and Pepsi products into bordering woods.

No significant injuries were reported and damage was limited to the one vehicle and a utility pole, police said.

The vehicle’s brakes had failed, according to Tisbury police officer Jeffery Day, who responded to the scene. Attempting to slow the vehicle down along the straightaway section of road, the driver maneuvered to the vehicle to the shoulder, Officer Day said. The driver was able to slow the vehicle along the shoulder for about 100 yards until the shoulder dropped off and the truck veered further off the road, he said.

The truck grazed a utility pole and veered into a ditch, swiping several large trees.

“The operator did a great job of avoiding many obstacles that were present . . . avoiding collisions with other vehicles on the road,” Officer Day said. “He basically threaded the needle with the truck between telephone poles and trees . . . also avoiding a row of large rocks.”

The vehicle, a standard box truck with a Pepsi logo, sustained significant damage, shearing off panels on both sides of the cab, police said. The driver was on a delivery route, heading down-Island, Officer Day said. The time of the accident was approximately 11:30 a.m.

The vehicle was towed. As of 2 p.m., Eversource was still on scene to replace the damaged utility pole. Officer Day said there were no power outages as a result of the accident.

No charges have been filed against the driver, he said.
