Three People Rescued After Vehicle Plunged Into South Lincoln Creek

LINCOLN–(10/11 Now)–Emergency crews rescued three people after their vehicle landed upside down in a ravine in south Lincoln.

Lincoln Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Bob Watton told KFOR’s media partner, 10/11 Now, they responded to a report of a person trapped in a vehicle near 40th Street and Faulkner Drive on Monday around 2:15 p.m.  Watton said it appears they drove too fast through a parking lot and landed upside down in a creek. It’s a 20-foot drop off where the vehicle landed.

Two people sustained only minor injuries and a third has moderate injuries. All three people were taken to the hospital to be examined. Capitol Towing helped remove the car from the creek.

Watton said gas leaked out of the car and down the creek bed into the pond, so the health department is on site isolating the gas in the waterway.
