Car washed off road at Medina River’s English Crossing – Two rescued

Saturday morning, two occupants in a car were trying to cross the Medina River at English Crossing when their car was washed off the road.


Two young adults were rescued from the vehicle that washed away.

Two Pipe Creek firefighters, George Hohon and Chief Brandon Lee cleared the scene and made sure all occupants were out of the vehicle, according to the Pipe Creek Volunteer Fire Department.

The Bandera Marshalls office said that this is “A fine example of why you should not drive through running water! Four lives risked; The two that chose to drive through and the two firemen that had to go into the water because of the first two.”

This is an important reminder for everyone when confronted with flooded roads and bridges. TURN AROUND. DON’T DROWN!
