No injuries reported in Lincoln Ave. crash.

A work van traveling north on Lincoln Avenue lost control and struck a tree Monday afternoon in Glen Rock. The single occupant was uninjured. At the scene, he scarfed down on pizza while directed traffic.

The vehicle, which sustained significant front-end damage, was towed from the scene.

You know it's the burbs when a guy eating a slice of pizza makes the headlines.

It's a funny story; I considered putting up the breaking news alert because it's kind of absurd.

Was he eating the first slice while driving?

Dunno, waiting on a phone call from police. For now, the mystery continues!

Ah give the guy a break. He had a slice while waiting for the cops. No one but the oak tree and his van got hurt. There's no crime in that! Unless the can in his right hand is a beer can.. Then there just may be an issue here. :)

how did he "lose control"? distracted driving, on the cell phone, what?

Is it not primarily a matter of luck that nobody happened to get sandwiched between the truck and the tree?

eating Pizza?!

I figured he was ordering it. "Yeah, deliver it to the oak tree I'm driving into."

he hit the tree so that he would have some toothpicks after the pizza
