No injuries were reported after a pickup truck plunged into the Spring River at a residence on Broken Arrow in Hardy Oct. 26 just before noon.
Hardy Police Chief Tamara Taylor was dispatched to a residence where she met with vehicle owner Dalton Howells.
Howells told Taylor he had just arrived at his parent’s cabin approximately an hour before and had been attempting to load kayaks and canoes into his truck at the time of the incident.
While backing down a nearby boat ramp, the rear tire of Howells’ black, 2017 Ford F250 hit a slick patch on the boat ramp. Howells said he had meant to hit the break, but stepped onto the gas instead.
