It happened northeast of
Lindale on FM 1804 just south of the Sabine River Bridge.
Authorities say they
received a call about a car crossing a flooded roadway that could be at risk of
being washed away.
They responded with a
helicopter to aid in the search. Lindale Fire was first on the scene. On the
Wood County side the Mineola Fire Department was standing by. A couple hours
later, the search was called off.
Steve Finley with the
Mineola Fire Department said, "We contacted DPS for their helicopter which you
hear right now, and they've made a visual search of the river and found
nothing. We have not been able to contact the caller to get additional
information. So, nothing was found."
The bridge over the Sabine
was not underwater. FM 1804 dips down into the floodplain, so the low part of
the road can become flooded several times a year.
According to the Texas
Department of Transportation, this is the only road under their care that is
closed at this time.
