floodzoneBELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say they have recovered the body of a 29-year-old Bellevue man swept away by floodwaters after he drove into a rain-swollen ditch during a storm.

Authorities say the body of David Farr was found about 9:30 a.m. Saturday near a drainage ditch just south of Highway 370.

Police were called to the area Friday night as heavy rain fell by witnesses who said Farr drove into the ditch. The witnesses said Farr was able to get out of the car, but was pulled underwater and didn’t resurface.

Firefighters were unable to enter the water because the current was too strong.
