Many questions remain unanswered after a car crashed into a pond overnight Wednesday, killing two men.

Police said the crash happened around 1:20 a.m. near intersection of Shore Blvd. East and Lakeside South, near Eastland Mall. Emergency crews responded to the scene after someone called 911.

When crews arrived, they found a car submerged in the pond at the apartment complex. The water rescue team then found two men in the car.

One man was pronounced dead Wednesday morning, the second was pronounced Wednesday afternoon after being rushed to Grant Medical Center.

Police were able to identify one of the men through fingerprints, but withheld the information to notify next of kin.
