HAWTHORNE, NJ - When entering the Hawthorne Car Wash at 1112 Goffle Road, drivers have to put their vehicles into neutral to go through the washing process.  On Saturday afternoon, at approximately 2:00 p.m., an apparent mistake of reverse for neutral sent a red pickup truck rolling backwards into Goffle Brook just behind the business, sources said.  Police responded to the report and found the stuck vehicle with no reported injuries.

A tow truck arrived to pull the pickup out of the brook's muddy bank by means of a winch.
