Glen Rock NJ, Shortly after 9:30 PM on Thursday, 05/16, Glen Rock Police and Glen Rock Fire Department responded to a 911 telephone call reporting that a U-Haul rental truck had struck a gas station building at 390 South Maple Avenue, Glen Rock. First arriving units quickly determined that no one was injured in the mishap, and that damage to the gas station itself was very minimal. However, the truck’s drive shaft was severely damaged rendering the vehicle completely unmovable. A heavy duty tow truck was used extricate the rental vehicle from its post crash resting position and remove it from the scene. No word as to whether the driver would be responsible for towing charges and damages incurred to the vehicle.
” No permits should be issued by police to allow people to be bothered in their own homes. I would jump a mile if my doorbell rang after 8 PM when I wasn’t expecting anyone. I would not respond, but then there’s the chance that your house is being cased to see if anyone is home, so supposedly you’re better off yelling “No thanks!” Why should the burden fall on a person in his or her own home? All such permit requests should be denied, including political movements and fundraising. I believe this will eventually happen and I hope it’s not because of some awful incident. Sorry, but it’s a new world and the sanctity of the privacy of one’s home must be respected. Fundraising efforts should be directed elsewhere. “
