CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Truck Falls Through South Jersey Boardwalk

A day after a South Jersey boardwalk collapsed under the weight of a delivery truck, police released surveillance video showing the truck crashing through the wooden boards.

A truck intended to pick up a carnival game was maneuvering on the boardwalk near E 23rd Avenue in North Wildwood, New Jersey around 5:40 p.m. Monday when some of the wood gave way, causing the back of the vehicle to break through.

In the moments after the truck fell into the boards, you could see the driver jump out of the cab to see what happened.

No one was hurt in the incident.

North Wildwood Police, who released the surveillance video, said the truck had a permit to be on the boardwalk but was too heavy.

A crane later removed the truck from the hole.
