The storm stalled out of Summerville, Trion and Menlo around 10:45 p.m. and dumped nearly three inches of rain within an hour.
Aleigha Dennis was driving her 2013 Honda Accord on Highland Avenue when she encountered problems around 11:15 p.m. Around George’s Quick Service water had pooled to about 2-feet deep, according to a Summerville Police report.
“[Dennis] was attempting to traverse Highland Avenue in the flooded street and her vehicle stalled out and would not re-start,” Officer David Westbrooks stated.
LuAllen’s Wrecker Service was called to pull Dennis’ car from the floodwaters.
“[I] was unable to do a report at the time of the incident due to other high priority calls coming in about flooding and trees being down,” Officer Westbrooks stated.
