PISCATAWAY — Despite a police and resident rescue, a 30-year-old New Brunswick resident died after their car plunged into a lake in Piscataway Saturday night, according to police.
They said the driver of a dark-colored sedan was going north on Metlars Lane, when, for reasons unknown at this time, crashed through a guard rail and went into Lake Nelson.
The Somerset Dive Team had to secure the car to have a special towing service pull it out of Lake Nelson.
Piscataway police Officers Lance LeBrew, Michael J. Medvecky, and Kyle Snyder and Lake Nelson resident Dennis Gilbert dove into the water to try and save the driver, who was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
