A Lebanon woman was unharmed after her car hydroplaned on Hartmann Drive and wound up in a creek during the heavy rain that came through Lebanon Thursday morning.
Lebanon Police Officer Steve Green said a 2006 Suzuki Reno driven by Christina Garcia, 25, of Lebanon, was traveling north on Hartmann Drive when she hit a patch of water and hydroplaned to the left side of the road sending it into the creek below.
“She admitted to driving a little too fast and she said she was late for work and just hydroplaned,” Green said.
Green said Garcia managed to climb out of the vehicle herself and was then assisted out of the creek by deputies with the Wilson County Sheriff’s Department. There were no other passengers inside the vehicle.
Green noted that Garcia was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the accident.
