4 Rescued After Cars Get Stuck In Tujunga Wash

SUNLAND (CBS) — Firefighters rescued four people in two vehicles that got stuck in the rain-swollen Tujunga Wash Thursday.

A car with an adult with two children in it and a pickup got stuck in the wash close to where Oro Vista Avenue crosses it just after 9 a.m., Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

The two vehicles were stuck in about a foot of water, and tow trucks pulled the two vehicles out with the people still inside. Members of a fire department swift water rescue team were standing by in case they were needed.
