Photo Gallery | Images of a 'swift water' rescue
These images reflect what happens when motorists drive around barricades and enter washes. Fire departments are called out to pull them from harm.
This was a response earlier this week after a particularly bad monsoon hit the area just southwest of Tucson. Drexel Heights was called out to help this motorist, stranded in running water.
Residents are encouraged to remember - don't drown, turn around!
Do you have any photos of someone stuck in a wash? We would like to see them, maybe even add them to this photo gallery. Just email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload them at http://pics.tucsonnewsnow.com
