A Nashville fire truck heading to a water rescue slid off the road and into the engorged Harpeth River. It happened right next to the Bellevue driving range and golf course – a place that floods easily but almost never floods like this.
DEADLY FLOODING: The Nashville Fire Department said four people were killed, 71 people were transported to hospitals and crews responded to 251 incidents during flash flooding Saturday evening and overnight.

The rushing waters also swept away a Nashville fire truck on Old Harding Pike near Morton Mill as firefighters raced to a rescue call.
A fire department spokesperson tells News 2 all of their personnel made it out of the sinking fire engine safely.
