HARRISON, Ohio -- A woman was rescued by firefighters Sunday night after her car got stuck in several feet of water on a closed road.
First responders said the woman attempted to drive through three feet of water on Campbell Road in Harrison at about 8 p.m. after seeing two other cards drive through it.
"I didn't think it was that high. It was pretty high last night. It didn't look as high so I just went on through and got stuck," said the driver of the car, Elizabeth Adair-Scholtes.
Adair-Scholtes said she the sign indicating the road was closed was knocked down.
While the woman wasn't injured in the incident, police said the situation is a reminder to motorists that high water is a threat.
Campbell Road remained closed early Monday morning.
