This is a good lesson as why not to drive through standing water.
The driver of a car just southeast of Kirksville, Missouri apparently thought he could get through the water from the overflowing Bear Creek.
Bear Creek overflowed from the torrential rains that fell Wednesday morning.
Television station KTVO recorded about three inches of rain, but other reports indicated as much as six inches of rain had fallen.
The heavy rains closed numerous roads because of high water. Even Highway 36 between Highway 63 and Highway 3 was closed this morning due to high water.
