Truck Trapped By Swollen Stream



Heavy rains drenched the county on Saturday, putting a damper on the opening day of trout season for many local anglers and placing several individuals in danger when they attempted to drive through quickly moving waters. A Bethel Township man reportedly attempted to ford the Little Tonoloway on Mays Chapel Road over the weekend, and his truck (above) became disabled in the creek bed. In addition, an all-terrain vehicle was allegedly swept off the bed of the small truck. Meanwhile, PennDOT road crews and members of the Hustontown Area Volunteer Fire Co. responded to a dispatch for a stranded motorist along Route 655 between Hustontown and Harrisonville Saturday evening. The driver tried to travel through the water flooding the roadway and required assistance for herself and her stranded car.
