Early this morning, a car drove into the Newtown Creek. Police divers pulled two men from the water, one was alive and the other was dead.

According to WNBC 4, officials believe the car "drove through a fence on Apollo Street and ended up in Newtown Creek about 3:30 a.m." Witnesses tell WCBS 2 that they heard the "car racing down" the street. And WABC 7 reports when a man in his 20s was pulled up, he was "screaming that people were still trapped below." Divers did find a second body, and it's possible there was a third passenger.
