A car in the water
Hatchback has been stuck in Wateree River since November
Car in Water
A hatchback Toyota Rav-4 sits near the Lugoff bank of the Wateree River directly across from Kershaw County Soil & Water Conservation Commissioner David Rodgers property. Rodgers said the car originally went into the water closer to the Wateree Dam (several 1,000 feet to the right of this scene) in November 2018 and that stronger water flow pushed it downstream to where it is now, just south of the mouth to Sawney’s Creek in February. - photo by Martin L.

Drive about 5-1/2 miles north on S.C. 97 from where it splits off from North Broad Street in Camden’s Dusty Bend and you’ll come to Lorick Horton Road. Take a left and quickly curve right to stay on the old paved road. Three-quarters of a mile later, you’ll cross a creek called Rocky Branch.
