Pickup Truck ends up in River

CTRiverSPRINGFIELD (WGGB) — The constant rain may have played part in a peculiar accident today in Springfield.

A driver lost control of a pickup truck going eastbound on Locust Street — sending it off the road and into the river.

The driver was able to quickly get out — and did not sustain any injuries.

Responding crews had to use a tow truck to pull the vehicle from the water.

Police did not release an official cause of the accident.
