Driver, Vehicle Pulled From Rising River (PHOTOS)

Monday afternoon, Grantham firefighters were dispatched to a possible water rescue near the boat ramp on Ferry Bridge Road.  At the time of the call, all that was known was that a van was reportedly stuck in the river.  Grantham responded with two rescue boats, launched into the river, and spotted the vehicle and driver in the water.  The driver, identified as Kenneth Hobbs, was assisted into the boat, brought back to dry land, and checked out by EMS.  Hobbs had apparently driven past a road closed sign and high water barrier at the intersection of Stevens Mill Road and Ferry Bridge Road.  The incident is being investigated by the State Highway Patrol and charges are expected.  Several Wayne County Sheriff’s deputies were also at the scene to assist.
