Lugoff Fire-Rescue crews were dispatched around 6 AM today to Training Track Drive inside the Saddlebrook Subdivision off US 1 in Lugoff for a vehicle partially submerged in water with passengers trapped inside. A Kershaw County Deputy arrived first on the scene and reported to the fire crews that the water was up to the passenger’s knees inside the small car. An adult female and small child were still inside the vehicle with the water rising from flash flooding. Lugoff rescue crews drove the rescue truck into the water as close to the vehicle as possible. Lugoff crews then made entry into the vehicle in the water and removed the passengers. Lugoff crews then drove the passengers back home inside the subdivision for safety during the storm around 6:30 AM.

“This was a best-case scenario for our crews as the water did not rise too far inside the vehicle before our crews made access to the passengers. The greatest danger to everyone was the lightning from the storm while our crews were in the water and rain during the rescue. Everyone did a great job and no one was injured in the incident” Lugoff Fire Chief Dennis Ray stated.

It appears that the vehicle stalled in the water when the driver came to the stop sign in the street. Once the vehicle stalled, it was deep in the water and the passengers could not exit as the water came into the cab. Preliminary investigation showed that the very heavy rain could not drain fast enough and led to substantial accumulation of water in the street. The Kershaw County School District was also notified to re-route school bus traffic in the area and Kershaw County Public Works department was dispatched to the scene to look at the drainage issue. The flash flooding from the storm caused roadway flooding from overflowing ditches and ponding of water in low lying areas of Lugoff. By 9 AM, most of the ditches had drained and roadways improved from the flash flooding.
