High water causes backup on I-45 in Navarro County

Image 1 of 2

Interstate 45 in Navarro County is backed up for miles because of high water covering portions of the roadway.

One person was stranded in car early Monday and had to be rescued. Many drivers got out of their cars and just watched. One driver in an SUV splashed through the high water, driving the wrong way and then weaving around trucks to get to higher ground.

Although the water is starting to recede, it’s still quite high in some places.
