MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — A Middle Tennessee teen is facing a charge of reckless endangerment after crews had to rescue him from a rain swollen stream.
The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office says that 18-year-old Clinton Cole Powers drove into rushing water covering a portion of Elam Road Sunday and his truck ended up in the Stones River.
A statement from the agency says Powers was rescued by swift water technicians from the Emergency Medical Services' Special Operations Response Team. His passenger, 21-year-old Brentan Mihm, swam to shore.
