Heavy rainfall leads to dozens of crashes

Thursday was a hectic day in the central portion of Texas when heavy rainfall flooded roads, causing dozens of wrecks in the area. In addition, it was reported that more than 46 crashes occurred in the following counties: Bell, Hill, and McLennan. Likewise, the heaviest rainfall occurred in the morning, which attributed to many vehicles hydroplaning, and crashing. Police in the area furthermore urged drivers to slow down in inclement weather stating many drivers simply did not slow down even with the rainfall. Other drivers didn't allow enough space in between themselves and the other vehicles on the road thus leading to crashes as well. The largest crash of them all on Thursday left one town without power after a semi hydroplaned and hit a nearby power line on Highway 77. As a result, the power line came to a rest draped over the semi's hood, with the driver still trapped inside. Luckily crews were able to turn off the power after about an hour, and successfully rescue the driver to safety.
