Dashcam video captures CHP car swept up in Montecito flooding

Dashcam video of CHP car caught in mudslides
MONTECITO, Calif. -

The California Highway Patrol released incredible dashcam video of one of their CHP vehicles caught up in the Montecito mudslide and flooding.

The officers were responding to a call of a structure fire that night. But, as you can see from the video they never made it -- instead, they drove right into the mudflow and a huge wave of water and debris lifted up their patrol vehicle and spun it 180 degrees.

With no traction, the car was pulled down -- but about 15 seconds later, the car found the road and the officers were thankfully able to escape.
