Deep Water Stalls Car On North College Near Cajun Field

A vehicle approaches standing water at Cajun Field (Staff Photo)

A listener sent this video of a car that stalled in the standing water on North College near Cajun Field…

Before you watch the video, you might want to remind the drivers in your family that it is unsafe to drive through standing water.  The listener told me that vehicles were hitting that spot at speeds of 30-35 miles per hour.  DANGEROUS!!

 

 

I’m sorry that this guy had to get out and push his car, I am sure that he thought the water wasn’t that deep.  The listener who sent us this video told us that a passing motorist in a pick-up truck stopped to help (he had some rubber boots!).

Now that you have seen the video, you know that standing water can be dangerous to your vehicle, too.  If certain components under the hood get wet, it will cause your vehicle to stall.  If your vehicle “sucks up” some water into the system that is supposed to take in air only, it can kill your engine; I don’t mean “stall” your engine, I mean it can KILL your engine.  Ruin it.  Force you to replace it, or replace your vehicle.

We hope that this gentleman’s car is okay, and that it is not seriously damaged…
