Surfing Prius Rides Mudslide Wave Down Burbank Street

Surfing Prius Rides Mudslide Wave Down Burbank Street”

A terrifying video, widely shared on social media, shows Dallas native Desionne Franklin's auto going down a steep, curved path even as it is chased by a deluge of muddy water.

Franklin and his girlfriend jumped in his Prius but before they could make it down Country Club Road the mud caught up with them. Later, a video of the vehicle was also posted on his Instagram account with the caption: "Barely made it out!"

When the storm came Tuesday, he and his girlfriend realized they needed to evacuate their friend's home on Country Club Drive in Burbank immediately. Water, rocks and mud cascaded down from mountains stripped bare of soil-stabilizing brush by a recent wildfire.

The video was uploaded to Instagram by Burbank Firefighters Local 778 with the caption "Urban Prius bobsledding in #Burbank!"

Franklin told the TV station that he and his girlfriend soon then packed into the Prius.

Desionne Franklin said on Tuesday morning he became anxious about the weather conditions.

"I could hear a rumbling and the rain was coming down hard and I said 'we gotta go now, '" Franklin said. It picked up their auto and swept it down the road like a bobsled.

Then, a neighbor reported that rocks and small boulders were beginning to fall farther up the hill. "I guess this is going to be it for me, right here", he thought. His girlfriend was in the vehicle with him, he said. "I'm like, I'm going but I have no control of the brakes or the steering or anything at that point for a part of the way down".

Then, a wave of water crashed into the back of the auto.

With his girlfriend screaming at the top of her lungs, Franklin managed to get some traction and maneuver the auto to the bottom of the hill, where several other smashed-up vehicles had come to rest after similar journeys. "We've got to get out of here!'" Franklin said.
