On Thursday, Sept. 6 at 1:07 p.m., the Crawford County Dispatch Center was notified of an SUV in the flood waters off of Highway 61 at Trout Creek Road, Soldiers Grove.

Donald Paulsen, 73, Blue River, was driving a 2006 Buick SUV south on Highway 61. His vehicle’s left rear suspension broke which caused the vehicle to go into the right ditch and become submerged in the flood waters.

Paulsen and his passenger, Gordon Butler, 80, Boscobel, were not injured. They were rescued from the water by passerby Army National Guard members. Paulsen’s vehicle sustained suspension and water damage and was towed.

Assisting at the scene were the Army National Guard, Soldiers Grove Fire Department, North Crawford Rescue Squad, state patrol and Terry’s Tire and Tow.
