Mercedes-Benz SL-Class stalls in Maryland flash flood

An R230 series Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has fallen victim to a flash flood that hit Ellicott City, Maryland yesterday.

The driver of the Mercedes attempts to proceed along a flooded street before the car stalls, attracting the attention of onlookers who happily film the event.

Several Toyota vehicles of all shapes and sizes then proceed to pass the hapless Mercedes, though in fairness, they all sit a few inches higher than the low-slung luxury convertible.

The video just goes to show that it’s usually best to pull over and sit out a rough storm, rather than proceeding to drive on to your destination.
