Truck gets river bath

Posted by wlpo on July 22, 2012

A peru man’s truck and trailer got a bath in the Illinois River about 10:35pm Saturday night. Peru police say the fire department dive team and two tow trucks were required to pull truck and trailer from the river at the Peru Boat Launch. Police say a winch strap broke allowing everything to roll back into the river. The recovery job took about four hours. Peru police would not release the name of the owner.
