Cincinatti driver gets stranded after attempting to beat floodwater

A video captured in Cincinatti, Ohio shows exactly why even drivers of massive 4x4 SUVs shouldn't become complacent in bad conditions. After severe flooding on the Ohio River over the weekend, many neighbourhoods were left with deep water lining their streets.

The advice in such adverse conditions would have been to remain home, and certainly not attempt to drive your vehicle through the floodwater. But one motorist in a large Ford pickup truck decided that his hefty vehicle was enough to beat the tide, and attempted to drive through a particularly deep area.
