GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Crews have rescued a man whose truck was swept away in moving water on St. Delight Road off Highway 521 in Georgetown County Sunday evening.

Georgetown spokesperson Jackie Broach says the man is being transported to the hospital.

Broach says the vehicle was swept away when the driver went around the road closure barricade.

Georgetown County Fire, Midway Fire and the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office were all on scene during the search and rescue.

The Georgetown County Facebook page posted dramatic aerial video of the Midway Fire Rescue boat performing the rescue operation.

Broach wants to remind the public to please stay off roadways if possible, to not drive through standing water and to not drive around barricades.
