HAMILTON CO. --  Rain pounded parts of the region early Sunday morning, leading to several accidents where cars were trapped in water.

The McLeansboro Fire Department was called out to an accident where a car drove into a flooded area. Officials say the people there were able to get out.
 
However, at an accident near Macedonia, a driver had to be rescued out of his car. The Benton dive team was called in to make sure no other passengers were inside. The driver was later taken to an Evansville hospital.
