Eau Claire (WQOW) -- A near-disaster was narrowly avoided for the driver of a pickup truck Thursday night in Eau Claire.

The driver told News 18 it slipped out of gear and slid into the Chippewa River. Luckily, it landed in a shallow area and was not swept away. All occupants were able to get out of the truck and no one was hurt. A tow truck was eventually able to pull the truck out of the river.

Police told News 18 that they were not likely to issue a citation to the driver, adding that he already faced a hefty tow bill.
