Car lands upside down in creek

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A line of severe weather moved through the capital city Wednesday afternoon bringing heavy rain.

The downpours may have played a role in several traffic accidents on metro area roadways.

In northeast Jackson, a car went off the road into a creek near Colonial Circle and Orchard View Drive.

Mykal Bennett told police he lost control of his Toyota Camry, then landed upside-down in Purple Creek.

Remarkably, Bennett was up and walking shortly afterward.

Bennett was not seriously injured, but his car was totaled.
