Manteca Bulletin - - Nation -

DAL­LAS (AP) — A woman and her young child have drowned af­ter their car was swept into a flooded cul­vert in Fort Worth amid heavy rain­fall across North Texas and other parts of the state.

Fort Worth po­lice of­fi­cer Jimmy Pol­lozani says the car had stalled in flood­wa­ters Satur­day near the cul­vert. He says pass­ing ve­hi­cles cre­ated waves that pushed the car into the cul­vert, sub­merg­ing it.

The bod­ies of the woman, who was in her 20s, and her 2-year-old were later re­cov­ered.

The soil al­ready was sat­u­rated from rain in re­cent days, caus­ing heavy rain­fall that be­gan Fri­day to over­whelm creeks and turn streets into streams.
