Viral video shows why drivers should not drive through water

(WMC-TV) - One dramatic video proves why drivers should not try to drive through deep waters.

70-year-old Colorado driver Glenn Dotson went against that conventional wisdom. Dotson attempted to drive through the floodwaters on Highway 24 and lived to tell about it... thanks to another driver who came to his rescue.

"I almost turned off in Old Colorado City there. I thought...maybe I can make it. I shouldn't have, obviously," exclaimed Dotson.

Businessman Ben Tilghman got Dotson into his car, gave him a blanket, calmed him down, and drove him to a friend's house where they watched the video on the news.
