Police Dive into Water to Try and Save Driver Who Drove into Lake

PISCATAWAY: Sadly, a fatal car incident occurred in Piscataway last night. A 30-year-old New Brunswick resident was driving north on Metlars Lane, crashed through a guard rail and went into Lake Nelson.

Piscataway Township Police Department (PTPD) Patrol Officers Lance LeBrew, Michael J. Medvecky & Kyle Snyder and Lake Nelson resident Dennis Gilbert dove into the water to try to save the driver who unfortunately was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

As shown in the photos, the Somerset Dive Team subsequently had to secure the car to have a special towing service pull it out of Lake Nelson.

Many thanks to the PTPD, Arbor Hose Company #1, Inc. – The Pride of the North Side, New Market Fire Department, North Stelton Volunteer Fire Company, Somerset Fire & Rescue Co. No. 1, Middlesex County NJ Government Hazmat, Hackensack Meridian Health JFK Emergency Medical Services – HMH JFK EMS and North Stelton Rescue Squad for responding to the incident.
