Body of Truck Driver Swept Away in Rain-Swollen Ditch is Found

MEMPHIS, TN - Recovery crews have found the body of a Memphis truck driver who was swept away in a rain-swollen ditch.

The driver, identified as 58-year-old Clyde Stewart, was one of three people who died in drainage ditches at Memphis after rain storms swept through the area Monday night.

Stewart's body was found Wednesday afternoon.

He fell into a ditch while trying to tow a car that had run off a road in suburban Shelby County.

A 7-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man also died when they were carried away by flood waters in separate incidents.
