WEST FELICIANA PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Authorities say a man who went fishing on Saturday got his car stuck near Thompson Creek. He left it there, intending to retrieve it Sunday, but the creek flooded and his car ended up submerged.

The West Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office reported the car went into Thompson Creek.

It happened near the bridge that crosses the creek on US 61 near LA 964 between Port Hudson and St. Francisville.

Dive teams were called in to assist and a crane lifted the car out of the water.
