Truck Driver Rescued From Allen County Flood Waters Created by kblakeslee on 1/16/2013 2:36:44 PM
Rescue crews saved a cable installer who drove his truck into high waters near the
St. Marys River. This morning around 10:15 a.m., a DirecTV employee was driving on
South County Line Road. According to our partners in news at 21 Alive, the driver
passed a "Closed Road" sign, driving into high water. About two-thirds into the stretch of
road, the truck got stuck.
Fire department crews rode a small boat out to the stranded truck and rescued the driver.
In the meantime, crews are trying to figure out a way to get a tow out to the truck, to get
it out of the water.
