Ind. motorist missing after man dies in flooding

Posted: Updated:

ARCADIA, Ind. (AP) -- Central Indiana police are searching for a motorist who vanished along a flooded roadway near the spot where another man died Friday when floodwaters swept his car away.

Hamilton County Sheriff's deputy Bryan Orem says a motorist called 911 about 1 a.m. Saturday and reported his truck was sinking in water near rain-swollen Cicero Creek about 35 miles north of Indianapolis. Officers dispatched to the scene heard a person yell once and later found the Arcadia man's unoccupied truck about 200 feet off a roadway.

Orem says rescue teams resumed searching for that man after sunrise Saturday.

He says the man's truck entered floodwaters about a quarter-mile from where 64-year-old Robert Morgan, also of Arcadia, was swept to his death Friday night by floodwaters while driving along another flooded road.
