A car plunged into a pond in Long Island on Sunday around 6 pm killing three people, according to state police. The 2010 modeled Honda car was reported as a stolen vehicle. According to the police, the vehicle was stolen some time on Friday.
The car was noticed by a trooper when it was speeding up at IU Willets Road intersection where he began to follow it from a safe distance without turning on his cruiser’s siren or lights. The car fell right into the pond as it took a right turn and slid on the ice. According to a witness, the driver was on phone when the incident happened.
According to police, two of the passengers were found dead inside the car when the vehicle was pulled out of water. The third passenger was recovered from the water. The victims were immediately taken to the hospital where doctors pronounced them dead.
A local resident first spotted the car in the pond as he headed to that direction after hearing a loud noise. The identity of the victims is yet to be published.
