Stuck while trying to cross floodwater
A number of drivers had a narrow escape as they encountered floodwater in the Stony Creek and Neurum region this morning.
One incident occurred along the D’Aguilar Highway near Eaton Lane at Stony Creek, at about 9.30am.
Triple Zero was called after a female occupant was reportedly stuck in waist-high water.
A spokesperson from Police Media said a truck driver also rang to report the incident, and said the driver escaped the scene and headed to a pub.
Another incident involved a black Commodore at Neurum Road, Mt Archer, at 9.52am. Again, Triple Zero was called.
The occupants of the Commodore were in the middle of a bridge with the windscreen wipers on, but a resident from a nearby farm property later said the occupants were able to exit the bridge.
