At least three motorists were rescued on Monday morning after being trapped in their vehicles during the massive flooding that occurred in Lancaster and surrounding counties. The rescues took place on Langley Road near S.C. 9, Cimarron Road and Hershel Plyler Road.
High water in Lancaster is placing motorists at a higher risk of being involved in an accident or being trapped in their vehicles.
Areas located near Lancaster and Chesterfield counties have received over seven inches of rain and several flood warnings have also been issued. With more rain on the way, the Sheriff’s Office continues to warn motorists of trouble spots prone to flooding.
With motor vehicle travel being the number one means of transportation in the U.S., it’s not surprising that motor vehicle crashes were the cause of 90 deaths per day in 2010. Every trip to the store or drive across town presents its own set of risks, and road conditions and weather can vary those risks significantly. Therefore, it is necessary to stay informed and take appropriate safety precautions.
