SISSONVILLE, WV (WOWK) — One person has been rescued after attempting to drive through high water Thursday morning, according to Metro 911.
It happened around 8 am Thursday morning on the I-77 NB Haines Branch Road. The vehicle, which was floating down the river, has since been pulled out, according to Kanawha County Emergency Management.
Kanawha County Emergency Management Director CW Sigman says people really need to heed the advice “turn around, don’t drown.”
The driver was saved by a good samaritan, according to Sigman.
The exit is currently shut down due to high water. No injuries are being reported.
