Surfing Prius Caught in Powerful Mudslide Wave Down Burbank Street

A driver who rode a wave of muddy water down a twisting street in his auto during a Southern California flood said Thursday he is lucky to be alive.

The Prius' owner, Desionne Franklin, was initially in control, but told news reporters, "When I got halfway down the hill, I just felt this burst of water hit the back of the vehicle", he said. In this unsafe scenario, a man escaped a massive mudslide by racing his vehicle down a hill and counts himself as extremely lucky that he could manage to escape it unhurt, unharmed and alive.

"I just got pushed down the side of a hill by a wall of water and mud", Mr Franklin, 44, said in an Instagram video after the terrifying ride.

"Realistically we suspect we are going to have the discovery of more people killed in this incident", Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said at a Thursday news briefing, adding that he was hoping to find "miracle" survivors. Instead, he nervously surveyed the scene as it unfolded outside his window "like a torrent of water, and boulders, and rocks, and mud that was a constant flow". The sedan is seen nearly floating on the water in the video.

"My girlfriend was screaming at the top of her lungs: 'Go, go, go!" After turning the corner, Franklin said the sedan hydroplaned the rest of the way down the hill.

'One of the cars looked like a wadded up piece of foil paper, ' he said.

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. The viral video was shot in Burbank.
