State Police Calls: Runaway Truck Ends Up in Stream, Theft, Disorderly Conduct

CLARION COUNTY, Pa. (EYT) — Clarion-based State Police responded to the following incidents:

Runaway Truck Ends Up in Stream

State Police said a known man parked his 1988 Ford F-150 by a fuel pump at Uni-Mart along Broad Street in New Bethlehem on October 23 around 10:44 p.m. The driver exited the vehicle and then went inside to pay for gas.

Police said the man “thought he put his vehicle into park, but was in reverse.” The vehicle drifted backwards by Newbie Wheel Alignment and into a stream.

When the cashier asked what pump the man was on, he “gave a confused look when he peered out the window and saw his truck was gone.” At that point, he ran outside and found his truck in a nearby stream. The man got back into his truck and drove it through the stream, traveling underneath the Route 28 overpass in the direction of the J M Smucker Company factory.

The driver told police that he thought he “found a good spot” to navigate the truck back onto the roadway; however, it became stuck on the embankment by Keck Avenue.

Redbank Chevrolet Towing assisted at the scene.

No injuries were reported.
