PASCO, Wash.-- After local authorities became stuck in the snow, local farmers stepped in to help by using a tractor to pull them out.

A vehicle was struck by another driver and both cars slid off the road becoming lodged in the snow. The driver of the pick-up truck fled the scene.

A Pasco Police Officer and a Franklin County Sheriff Deputy stopped to help the drive who was hit but became stuck as well.
