An elderly man was rescued after his car was swept away by Fall Creek on Tuesday morning.

The man attempted to cross a low-water bridge on Baldy Ford Road in Lebanon after overnight and morning rains had left standing water on the roadway. The small sedan that he was driving was quickly pulled downstream, leaving him trapped in the creek.
