DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - New York State Police responded to a scary scene on Friday morning, where they found two bodies in a car submerged in a partially frozen pond on Weil Road in Dover.

Shortly before 7:30 a.m. on Friday, state police troopers were dispatched to a rural area of Dover, where they found a vehicle several feet from the roadway, submerged in the pond.

According to police, a SCUBA Unit was required to help extricate the vehicle from the icy water. During the investigation, responding officers located two male occupants in the vehicle, both dead. Their identities are being withheld as police attempt to notify their next of kin.

The collision is currently being investigated by the New York State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit and the Forensic Identification Unit. According to police, it is unknown if drugs or alcohol were contributing factors to the collision.
