CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Driver learns hard lesson about high water


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Whenever there’s flooding, experts offer a simple piece of advice: Turn around. Don’t drown.

They’ll also tell you never to drive into water if you cannot see the roadway under it. That second lesson (and nearly the first) came the hard way for a driver on what is widely known as perhaps Wilmington’s most flood-prone road.

A viewer sent us this video of a car driving through high water on New Centre Drive near S. College Road. The driver tries to turn left into a parking lot, apparently not realizing the water was about to get even deeper.

We are trying to find out what happened to the driver and the car after the video ended.
