Three people were rescued Friday morning in Grant County after a pickup truck they were riding in got stuck in high water, Kentucky State Police said.
William Upton, 29, Elizabeth Rogers, 35, and a 14-month-old child, all of Dry Ridge, waited in the bed of the Toyota pickup truck after it got stuck in high water on Elliston Mt. Zion Road about 5:30 a.m. Friday, state police said.
Trooper Rick Saint-Blancard said water had begun to fill the inside of the truck. The water was from a nearby creek that overflowed onto the road because of recent rains.
The couple and child were rescued about 8 a.m. after the Northern Kentucky Technical Rescue Team used a raft to travel about a quarter-mile to the trapped vehicle.
