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.
