Gallia County motorist dies after vehicle swept away by floodwaters
(2008-03-21)
(WOUB) - Authorities say a man who drove his pickup
truck into flood waters in Gallia County was swept away and drowned.

The death of 53-year old David Cottrill is at least the third in Ohio since heavy rains coupled with melting snow have flooded much of the state.

Authorities said Cottrill's vehicle was swept away near Vinton
after he drove into deep water.

He managed to get out of the truck, but drowned.

His body was recovered yesterday.
