Car in river
His drink spilled in the floor of his Ford Expedition, then he spilled his SUV into the river. A diver was going to have to go in and attach a cord to the SUV to pull it out of the river before it was washed down the river and into two local bridges. 29-year-old Farron Catron, the Second said he leaned over after his drink spilled to pick it up and ended up driving straight into the river. He managed to swim to shore and was unharmed. Wet roads could have been a factor, and Hawkins County Emergency Director Gary Murrell said if the rain had not elevated the levels of the river, Catron would not have ended up in it. (CC)
