By IRENE HSIAO
A man in his mid-20s will not be cited after being rescued from the Cañada del Oro wash last night.
“This is not a stupid motorist case,” said Rural/Metro District Chief George Good. “You couldn’t tell there was water in the wash. He basically got hit by a flash flood.”
The man’s Volvo got stuck at about 8:25 p.m. at North La Cholla Boulevard. Up to 2 inches of rain fell on the northern slopes of the Santa Catalinas last night. The water drains into the CDO.
