FANNIN COUNTY, TX - Rising flood waters trapped a woman in her car in Fannin County Wednesday afternoon.

The Fannin County Sheriff's Office says she drove into what she thought was a few inches water on County Road 2630. They say her car stalled, and she couldn't get her doors open panicked and called 911. A Bonham Fire Department rescue team rescued her, but authorities say they had a tough time getting to her because of all the high water in the area.
Brad Hammit owns a ranch on 2630. He says that when it rains as much as it has been, road conditions in the area can get pretty treacherous.

"When it rains there's a lot of water that's carried through this county and down this creek bottom down to the Bois D'arc and all that," said Hammit, "so it's pretty treacherous sometimes. "

No one was hurt during the rescue.
