Texas Man Drives Into Flood Waters, Drowns

A Texas man drives into high water over the weekend and drowns.  It happened south of Lake Tawakoni. The Van Zandt county sheriff's department identified the driver as 48-year-old Douglas Jack Trammell. Authorities said Trammell's truck was flooded because of the recent rain.  They said he called for help, and got out of the truck and began swimming. Unfortunately, game wardens found Trammell after the water receded.
