Crothersville Woman Rescued After Truck Hits Floodwaters

CROTHERSVILLE, Ind. (AP) – Conservation officers say a southern Indiana woman is recovering after being rescued from her pickup truck that became stalled in a river’s flood waters.

Officer Jim Schreck says 43-year-old Teresa Hilton of Crothersville was treated for possible hypothermia at a Seymour hospital after other conservation officers plucked her from the roof of her pickup Saturday evening.

The truck had stalled in high water from the Vernon Fork of the Muscatatuck River about 2 miles northeast of Crothersville. Schreck says intermittent flood waters in the area hampered them but they were able to deploy an airboat and rescue Hilton.

The National Weather Service posted flood warnings for the Muscatatuck River and other streams in southern Indiana after they became swollen from snowmelt and heavy rains on Thursday.
