ELIZABETHTON, Tn -

Police are warning drivers tonight about wet roads after two cars slide into creeks. Both of those crashes were in Elizabethton.

Police tell us a truck hit a bridge on Siam Road and then went into the creek near Wilbur Dam Road, the driver only had minor injuries. Authorities believe the heavy rains were a factor.

Elizabethton Police say the second crash happened around 8 p.m. on Bristol Highway near Rasnick Hollow Road.

We're told a female was trapped inside her car that flipped into the creek. She was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injures.
