SUV knocked off corner of Gervais St. Bridge, flash floods strand motorists
Isis Davis was working her shift at Palmetto Outdoor yesterday evening waiting for customers to return tubes after a trip down the river when a man’s attempt to drive across the Gervias St. Bridge came up short.
"We heard some metal crashing together so we knew a car had been hit and I didn't know if someone had hit someone in the parking lot or on the bridge,” she recalled, “And then we just see this Jeep - I'm pretty sure it flipped and then it just sort of landed on all four wheels. And it was all busted up. Everyone who was in the parking lot at that moment rushed over to the Jeep to make sure that everyone was OK.”
Surprisingly, witnesses said the driver walked from the wreck on his own power. Almost immediately afterwards, the sky opened up and flooded parts of town, leaving multiple stranded motorists in need of emergency assistance.
