A 22-year-old Glen Rock man heading to Massachusetts to begin a new job lost many of his possessions when his car became submerged by flood waters at the Maple Avenue train trestle Monday morning, according to Glen Rock Police.
Captain Jonathan Miller said police had just closed off one lane of the flood-prone area and were about to close off the opposite side when the resident – who did not initially see the high water level – drove through the trestle and was stuck in about four feet of water.
The man had a laptop computer, bedding, and several other items of value damaged by the water, Miller said. He was uninjured though his trip has been delayed. It's unclear if the vehicle can be salvaged, the police captain said.
There were other reports of flooding throughout Glen Rock Monday morning, according to Miller. Ackerman and Cornwall were among the roads where flooding proved troublesome for drivers, he noted.
