HELENA – County leaders are again asking residents to avoid driving through flood water.

MTN captured this video outside of Rossiter Elementary School this morning.

A volunteer coming to the school to help fill sandbags accidentally drove into a culvert.

Public Works Director Eric Griffin said the volunteer wasn’t injured but a tow truck had to be called in to pull the truck out of the flooded ditch.

Griffin said this incident is a prime example of how flood waters can be dangerous and deceiving.
