Two vehicles were swept off Waterford Road, a mile north of Waterford, when they drove into the flood waters of the North Branch of the Kokosing River. Both drivers, who declined to be identified, said it was dark and they failed to see the flooded road. The driver of the pickup at right, said he was driving west at 4 a.m. and was in the water before he knew it. The truck floated off the road. The driver of the other car shared a similar story, she didn’t see the flooding and her car also floated off the road.
