Heavy rain turns creeks into dangerous flood waters at a local state park, washing a car with people in it downstream.
It happened around 7pm at White Pines Forest State Park between Polo and Mt. Morris.
The driver was crossing a fjord when rushing water forced the car into a creek. It took rescuers over an hour to pull the driver, a passenger, and a dog safely from the car. They say it was especially difficult because of the strong current.
Park officials say the road they were on has a waterway that’s usually low enough for cars to cross. But, Wednesday’s heavy rainfall caught drivers by surprise.
