GARFIELD, N.J. -- A man who drove his SUV into a brook that feeds into the Saddle River in Garfield late Tuesday afternoon was being taken to an area hospital with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening, authorities said.
The SUV "went straight over the embankment" in the parking lot of the Quick Chek complex at 99 River Drive around 3:40 p.m., Capt. Darren Sucorowski told Daily Voice.
It left the vehicle upside down in the water, he said.
Firefighters and the Wallington Dive Team quickly extricated the driver, Sucorowski said.
