ZEBULON, N.C. (WNCN) — A dive team from Apex was called to a pond in Zebulon Monday morning after a car was found submerged up to its roof in the water, officials said.
The Hopkins Rural Fire Department received a call from the North Carolina State Highway Patrol at 7:07 a.m. requesting that they assist in pulling a car out of a pond at the intersection of Fowler and Duke Lakes roads, Hopkins Fire Chief Robert Carter told CBS 17.
When they arrived on scene, firefighters found a car submerged up to its roof in the pond. No one was located inside the vehicle, Carter said.
Officials called a dive team from Apex to come to the scene and scan the pond in case someone was in the water following the crash.
After searching the pond and not finding anyone in it, authorities determined that the car was stolen and then ditched in the pond.
No one has been arrested in connection with the incident.
