Driver Partially Submerges Truck; Flooding Closes O.C. Phillips, Pineville Roads

October 23, 2017

There were no injuries reported when a driver partially submerged a pickup truck in floodwaters sometime Sunday night or Monday morning on  O.C. Phillips Road at Brushy Creek. The truck was discovered late Monday morning on the remote dirt road.

O.C. Phillips Road is now closed due to flooding at the  bridge over Brushy Creek, between Highway 97A and South Pineville Road.

North Pineville Road is also closed due to flooding between Tullis Road and Jakes Road in the Nokomis area.

For information about an additional road closure on Barrineau Park Road at the Perdido River, click here.

    How the conversation in the truck went:

    Driver: “Hey y’all, watch this”
    Passenger: “You ain’t got the hair to cuz”

    *truck stalls and starts sinking…

    Driver: “Get the beer and cigarettes, we goin’ swimming”
