February 26, 2023


Cal Fire personnel rescued four people who became trapped on top of a car by flood waters in Paso Robles on Sunday.

Shortly before 1 p.m., a caller reported a driver had attempted to cross a flooded section of N. River Road when the car stalled. The four occupants then crawled on top of the white car.

The CHP, Cal Fire and the San Luis Obispo County Fire Department participated in the rescue.

“Please turn around at these low water crossings,” Cal Fire warns the public.

Do they know the $ of even older cars now days? Hope they didn’t ruin the car.

It’s ruined

“Hey Moe, hold my beer. I can make it. Watch this!” Whoo! Whoo! Whoo!

This nonsense will be diminished, somewhat, when word spreads that people ignoring road closure signs are charged full cost for their rescue.

Per 2 other news sites, these guys apparently ignored the sign that said FLOODED ROAD.
