The two people hospitalized on Thursday after the vehicle in which they traveled crashed into a lake near Deerfield Beach have died.
The incident happened after noon on I-95 at Hillsboro Boulevard.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, they received a call about a car in a lake. When fire crews arrived, they found that the car was upside down in the water and about 10 feet below the water's surface.
Two men believed to be in their 30's were taken to the hospital, unconscious and unresponsive. The men were later declared dead.
As a result, there are heavy delays on I-95 northbound. Officials urge drivers to seek an alternate route while they work to investigate and clear the scene.
