STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say four people climbed to the roof of a car after it veered into a DeKalb County river.
County fire Capt. Eric Jackson told local media that crews threw a rope and ladders out to two men and two children who were stranded after their car landed in the Yellow River Tuesday night.
Jackson says it's unclear what caused the car to swerve from the road and into the river. Jackson says the road the vehicle had been on is winding, dark and doesn't have many streetlights.
Authorities were planning to pull the car from the river on Wednesday.
