Jun 25, 2020

MATTAPOISETT — A slip of the foot from the break to the gas on Mattapoisett’s narrow Town Wharf landed a pickup truck driver in the water on June 25. 

The Harbormaster’s Department got a call at about 6:30 a.m. of a truck in the water off Long Wharf. The driver was the only one in the vehicle, and was able to get out safely.

By 7 a.m. Murphy’s towing was called to the scene to remove the vehicle from the water.
