A Metropolitan District Commission truck driver was assaulted in Hartford this morning.

Hartford Police say there was a minor accident between an MDC truck and a car. Police say several people beat up the truck driver.

A woman was arrested, but police are still looking for men involved in the assault.

The water agency said the dump truck driver was taken to the hospital after the incident on Tower Avenue.

The dump truck was on its way back to the yard, from a sewer grate repair project near Holcomb Street and Cornwall Street.

There was no immediate word on the condition of the dump truck driver, or whether any of the other people were hurt.
