Question Nitro SUVs Dont't Float

Heavy rains cause creek to overflow and create problems


SAN ANTONIO- The heavy rain has caused some streets throughout the city to flood. This includes the Salado Creek which is known to flood and where there are barricades in place to warn drivers.

The streets surrounding the Salado Creek are submerged in at least two feet of water and in some areas more, as the creek continues to over flow. This has caused the boundary that separates the creek and Ira Lee Road near Austin Highway to disappear.

The flow of water has partially submerged street signs. But, the most eye catching is this Dodge Nitro that appears to be right in the middle of it all.

According to police, the driver of the SUV disregarded a barrier and tried to joyride through the rising water despite the flashing lights and visible warning signs. The driver got stuck, but was able to walk away on his own and will now be cited for disregarding a barrier.
The vehicle will be towed as soon as the water recedes.

There’s no telling how much of an impact the overflowed creek will make in this surrounding area, but one thing is for sure, emergency responders are keeping a close eye.

The fine for going around a flood barrier is up to 200 dollars. If you have to be rescued by the fire department, that is a 600 dollar fine and if you're caught moving or tampering with a barrier you can be fined up to 1,000 dollars and possibly serve up to 2 years in prison.
