Driver Attempts to Cross Flooded Road - Does Not Succeed (Swiftwater Rescue Box 47-13)

November 16th, 2006

Just after it had gotten dark on Thursday, units from Jacksonville and special rescue and dive teams from throughout Baltimore and Harford Counties were dispatched for the report of a vehicle in the water with people inside. Five units from Jacksonville responded instantly and arrived minutes later to find a sedan in the middle of a flooded Greene Road near the Harford County line. Command was established as crews investigated the situation. It was quickly determined that all occupants were out of the vehicle. The driver advised that he thought he could drive through the water that was over one foot deep when his car stalled out. The remainder of the rescue assignment was cancelled and the scene was turned over to Baltimore County Police who shut the road down.

Jacksonville Units: E471, B472, E473, M475, U477
