Exhaust leak forces armored van to take a long break at McDonald's

MEREDITH — A armored van bringing cash from the Mt. Washington Valley to Massachusetts unexpectedly spent several hours in the McDonald's parking lot here on Tuesday evening.
According to police, an apparent exhaust system leak into the cab resulted in one of the employees of Garda Security who was riding in the van becoming quite sick. The van was traveling through Meredith at the time and the driver pulled into the McDonald's parking lot. The ill man was transported to the hospital for treatment but the van had to wait for a tow truck to make its way up from Massachusetts.
Police stood guard over the van and its valuable cargo until the tow truck arrived.
