A young woman whose car rolled off Route 21 into the Passaic River was rescued Monday morning by a Good Samaritan who pulled her from her sinking sedan and a police officer who threw them a lifeline, responders said.
“She was going north on Route 21 around 10:30 [a.m.] when she lost control and the car went over the guardrail,” one said. “It flipped three or four times and landed in the river.”
A Belleville police officer arrived as the passerby jumped in.
He threw them a safety preserver ring and pulled both to shore, a local police officer said.
Dive teams from Lyndhurst, Wallington, North Arlington brought the vehicle to the North Arlington riverbank to be towed out.
