Driver unhurt after detour into the swamp
A Fayette County deputy sheriff assists a woman whose car went off the road into a swampy area next to Hood Avenue Tuesday morning. She said she veered off the roadway, over-corrected and ran off the steep embankment on the north side of the road into the wetlands. Passers-by waited with the woman, who was unharmed, and directed traffic until police and rescue personnel arrived. Photo/Ben Nelms.
