Sisters’ vehicles sink in Garrard pond
CARTERSVILLE — Two sisters-in-law ended up with their vehicles stuck in a pond off Cartersville Road in Garrard County Tuesday.
Kristin Broughton’s car slid off a curve on the wet road Tuesday afternoon and ended up in a shallow pond, reported WLEX 18 News.
Broughton, of Harmon's Lick Road, left the vehicle as it began to sink further into the water and called her sister-in-law, Victoria Phillips, of Turkey Food Road, for help.
However, as Phillips came to Broughton’s aid, her car spun off the road in nearly the same spot and skidded into the pond as well.
Neither woman was injured but both had to wait for a tow truck to retrieve their sinking vehicles.
