Woman rescued after car floods in rushing water on road near Wendell

WENDELL, NC (WNCN) — A woman was rescued from rushing floodwaters after her car stalled in deep water along a water-covered road in Wake County Saturday night.

Heavy rains brought flooding to many areas of the Triangle, inundating a pond near Countrywood Lane about two miles northwest of Wendell and a mile northeast of Knightdale, according to Brian Amerson, a Wendell Fire Department battalion commander.

Around 8:45 p.m., a woman in her 30s was driving a four-door sedan down the street and then ran into the water, Amerson said.

The woman’s car partially left the roadway. Soon the woman was caught in rushing flood water and the car stopped, he said.

According to Amerson, the woman was afraid to get out amid the rushing waters.

She called 911 and a speedy water rescue team came and deployed a boat to help her.

However, she was able to get out with the help of rescuers, Amerson said.

The woman was not injured.
