PHOTOS: Crews from two cities were called out to rescue a man who was trapped on top of his truck in a flowing wash Monday evening. Units from Avondale Fire and Medical teamed up with the Buckeye Fire Department's technical rescue crew for the operation at 411th Avenue and Salome Highway, which is south of Interstate 10 about an hour west of Phoenix. "Units encountered an adult male perched on the hood of his truck in a wash with heavy amounts water flowing through the wash," according to Deputy Chief Ben Avitia of Avondale Fire and Medical. "Access was challenging due to localized flooding, and the waters were rising quickly around the flooded truck."
