Plow Truck Crashes Through Gate, Nearly Falls Into NJ River

A plow truck working a parking lot in Elizabeth, New Jersey lost control Monday morning and very nearly plowed the bottom of a river instead. 

A call about the truck hanging on Grand Street in Elizabeth came in shortly before 8 a.m.

There were initially reports that a person was trapped inside, but bystanders heard his screams for help and firefighters eventually got him out with a ladder.

The driver told News 4 New York that he's been plowing that lot for nine years, but that this morning, the plow just kept going and wouldn't stop.
