A flash flood swept a car off a mountain road and into a creek, leaving one person dead inside as heavy downpours from a summer storm hit Southern California and stranded around 2,000 people on Sunday.
The victim was at Mt. Baldy Road and Bear Canyon Drive in Mt. Baldy when the rush of water came, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said. Authorities were working to remove the body from the car late Sunday night.
