Video: Md. Deputies Save Driver from Car Submerged in Frigid Creek

Dec. 15, 2021
A woman's car crashed into Bush Creek, and Hartford County sheriff's deputies worked to rescue her after her vehicle became fully submerged in the cold water.

Deputies from the Southern Precinct of the Harford County Sheriff's Office rescued a woman from Bush Creek on Friday after her car became fully submerged in the water.

Around 1 p.m., deputies responded to a call from Flying Point Park Marina, where they found a car occupied by one individual on the boat ramp, partially in the water of the creek.

Deputies initially attempted to remove the driver but were unable to do so before the car became almost completely submerged, at which point the driver jumped out of the vehicle and into the frigid creek.

Corporal Sanchez, Senior Deputy Mothershed, Deputy First Class Tatum, and Corporal Frederick entered the water to rescue the woman, who police are choosing not to identify.

The woman was transported by first responders to the hospital for treatment of cold weather exposure and for further medical evaluation. No deputies were injured during the event.
