A driver was rescued from a vehicle Wednesday morning after the vehicle became stranded in high water on TR 88.

Lonnie Jaynes, assistant fire chief of Attica-Venice-Reed Fire District, said the driver had gotten their vehicle stranded in about 3 feet of water on TR 88 near South TR 197, and was rescued by firefighters without incident. The driver was not injured, he said.
