Truck left stranded in deep floodwaters after heavy rainfall in Tennessee

A truck was left stranded in deep water after heavy rainfall caused flash flooding in Tennessee over the weekend.

The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office shared footage of the vehicle marooned on a submerged road, as water rushed past it downstream.

Local authorities urged people to “refrain from driving on water-logged roads”, sharing a simple message of “turn around, don’t drown”.
