Rio Cosumnes firefighters with a boat responded to Twin Cities Road between Franklin Boulevard and Bruceville Road about 6:30 a.m.
Twin Cities Road flooded on Thursday at the location from heavy rainfall.

The driver was not injured. A boat has been brought to the scene to get the man to dry ground about 7:30 a.m.
“We can go in there and bring him to dry land,” Hansen said. “The important safety message here is slow down. It is dark and pretty darn foggy. If you come to a flooded roadway, turn around and find an alternate route.”
