Steven Garcia, 51, of Truth or Consequences walked outside his residence in the area of Elm and Riverside about 4:30 Thursday afternoon, September 27 to find his red truck was gone.
Further investigation by Garcia revealed that his truck had rolled backward down Elm Street, crossed the intersection at Riverside and went right into the river.
Thankfully no one was in the vehicle when it somehow slipped out of gear, however the truck did sustain some pretty severe water damage, as can be seen above in the vehicle’s cab.
This is the second vehicle this week that has driven into the River. The other was Monday, and was in the vicinity of the Rotary Park.
