A Clinton man is safe after his car was swept away by the current of a small DeWitt County creek.

 

At approximately 3:55 pm, CENCOM was notified 55-year old Marvin Long of Clinton was stuck in a creek off Paintball Road in rural DeWitt County.

 

The creek that runs along Paintball Road had flooded over a graveled path after the rain of Monday night. During an attempt to drive through the flooded area, Long's vehicle was swept into the creek by the current, and Long was deemed stuck.

 

A crane provided by Dan Ballenger was able to bring Long to safety and then remove his vehicle from the water.

 

Crews from Clinton and Kenney Fire Departments were on scene along with the DeWitt County EMS.
