WAUCOMA (KWWL) -

A Waucoma teen learned the meaning of "turn around, don't drown" the hard way on Thursday.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says Noah Leonard Balk, 17, of Waucoma, was southbound on 4th Street NE when he tried to drive through water over the road.

Deputies say Balk's truck was swept off the road and sank into the creek at the intersection of V-68 and Scenic Road.

Balk was able to get out of the truck and was not injured.

He was ticketed for careless driving.
