Lady Needs Help With Driving Test

Flash floods swamp Henderson County: "Maureen Peltier was another victim of high water. The 65-year-old Hendersonville [NC] woman was on her way home from the library in Fletcher, where she'd checked out a study guide to help her pass her driver's license test, when she drove her Chrysler New Yorker into more than four feet of water on Howard Gap Road. Henderson County Rescue Squad members waded through the water and pulled Peltier from her stranded vehicle at about 10 a.m. 'My husband and son are going to kill me,' said Peltier as she sat on the rear bumper of a Dana Fire Department emergency vehicle, a high-water mark about chest level on her white T-shirt, and tried to get warm."
