HACKENSACK - An elderly woman claims that a locked steering wheel caused her to drive her car into the Hackensack River yesterday.

The incident happened yesterday at the Spotless Auto Laundry.

The unidentified woman was leaving the car wash when she lost control of her car, and plunged into the river.

A worker at the car wash and a customer rushed to save her by jumping into the water and pulling her out through a window, just before the car submerged.
