Update: The driver of the submerged car was pronounced dead at Trinity Hospital. The passenger, 29-year-old Dustin Brown, was also taken to Trinity. There's no word on his condition.

Original Story:

Crews responded to a submerged vehicle in Souris River Monday evening with one person trapped inside. Around 7:30 p.m., Minot Fire and Police were called to 4th Ave. Northwest and 4th Street next to the river.

A vehicle carrying two passengers ended up at the bottom of the river. One passenger was able to escape, while the other was trapped in the vehicle. The Minot Fire Department says divers were having trouble getting the person out of the car because he or she was tangled under the seat belt.

"We were able to recover one person from the vehicle and get him to the ambulance," said Battalion Chief John Krill. "And three fire fighters and several paramedics took care of him in the ambulance and they transported him to Trinity Hospital It's unknown what his condition is."

Both passengers were transported to Trinity Hospital immediately. Neither of the passengers have been identified yet, but there will be an investigation.
