BETHANY, Okla. -- Intense rain Tuesday night and Wednesday morning caused flooding on city streets that left at least half a dozen drivers stranded.

Among them,Taylor Williams, whose car stopped running in the middle of Route 66 just west of MacArthur Blvd. 

"[Route 66] was like a big ol' river. I tried to putt-putt my way through it but my car just got wet," Williams said.

Most drivers were able to make it through the near knee-deep water but some had their cars give out on them in the middle of the road.

"I was driving like everybody else and all of a sudden it just cut off and completely stopped," Jeremy said. He was able to push his car into a nearby driveway.

Some residential areas in Bethany and Warr Acres also saw flooding.

"[The flood] got here pretty quick. This morning I got up at probably 3 a.m. when that first and second wave came in and the street was probably a quarter of what it is now," resident Jeremy said.

Some residents took advantage, playing out in the water before it began to recede around 8 a.m.

Tow trucks on Route 66 began clearing the stranded vehicles from Route 66 by 8:30 a.m.
