Drivers near Jefferson and Paseo Del Norte found themselves dodging hazardous waste Wednesday morning. 

Albuquerque Fire Rescue crews found bags and containers of medical waste strewn along Masthead Street. AFR collected it and disposed of it with their own hazardous waste. 

They say it wasn’t marked so they don’t know where it came from. They say they’re just happy they were able to get it contained and no one was hurt. 

They don’t believe it was a malicious act, but likely an accident.
