SEPTEMBER 30, 2012  3300 Blk Lafayette - Cedar River


The driver of this SUV drove over the Dike and into the Cedar River during the early morning hours of Serptember 30th, 2012.  During normal conditions, the water would be 4-7 feet deep however due to the extreme drought conditions, the deepest water was only 2 feet deep.  The driver, who was sleeping in the vehicle when firefighters found him was assisted to shore where he was turned over to law enforcement.  Firefighters assisted the tow company with hooking up the vehicle so it could be removed from the River.
