Shallotte woman killed when Horry Co. transport van caught in flood

Water from The Little Pee Dee River floods business and washes out part of Rte. 301

Stephen Flood, a 10-year veteran of the sheriff's office, and Joshua Bishop, a six-year veteran, escaped the van after it encountered floodwaters near U.S. Highway 76 and Pee Dee Island Road in Marion County.

Two women "detainees" chained in the back of a police van died when the vehicle was engulfed by Hurricane Florence floodwaters.

Holden says the deputies tried to get the mental health patients out but couldn't open the doors. According to the report, the two deputies climbed to the top of the van and were rescued by a high water team.

"Tonight's incident is a tragedy", said Horry County Sheriff Phillip Thompson.

A woman who answered the phone at a number listed for Flood told a reporter he didn't want to talk to anyone.

More miles of northbound Interstate 95 in SC, just south of the North Carolina line, have been closed due to flooding from Hurricane Florence, the S.C. Department of Transportation said Tuesday.

"The two deputies attempted to extricate the persons being transported", a statement from the Horry County sheriff's office noted.

In fact, the last defeat the club suffered on home turf came in 2013 after being humbled 3-0 by Bayern Munich. The Group B result extended Barcelona's unbeaten run at home to 27 matches in the Champions League .

"They were trying to negotiate through fast-running water, and it just didn't work out", Richardson told the Associated Press.

The deputies were transporting the women from Conway, near the coast, to Darlington, about 65 miles northwest, on Tuesday night.

As the van traveled down USA 76 - about a half-mile from the Little Pee Dee River, which separates Mullins from the town of Nichols - high water swept away the vehicle. "We are fully cooperating with the State Law Enforcement Division to support their investigation of this event".

When it comes to the deputies who assist in transport, Thompson said that they have gone through extensive intense training. The two individuals being transported were confirmed dead by the Marion County Coroner.

The SCDOT added the driver of the vehicle had to go around a barrier to get stuck where they were.

According to information from SCDOT's Twitter, I-95 is being closed at mile marker 175 in both directions due to high water levels at the bridges crossing the Great Pee Dee River. According to some accounts, water swept the vehicle off the road. "It's come up two feet since just last night". Due to unsafe conditions and rising waters, additional search and rescue teams are arriving to assist in the recovery of the vehicle. Two additional investigations including a traffic investigation and an internal investigation are taking place.
