Couple Rescued After Car
Stalls on Flooded Road
Sheriff’s deputies say 83-year-old John Vanscoter ignored barricades and signs closing the road because of high water, and then his car stalled in the three-feet of water on the road.
Firefighters rescued Vanscoter and his 82-year-old wife as they rising waters began to pull the car in the quick-moving current.
The couple was taken to Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Vanscoter has been cited for failing to obey a traffic control device.
