MORRISTOWN, Vt. (AP) - Police have identified two people who died after their car plunged into the Lamoille River in Morristown, Vermont, over the weekend.

Police say 34-year-old Paul Smith and 25-year-old Leonard Audet, both of Morristown, were found dead Saturday.

The crash happened on Route 15 A near Tenney Bridge.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/2gyxEgv) police believe the car was in the river for a period of time before it was discovered. Police believe speed may have been a factor in the crash. They are also attempting to determine what the road conditions may have been at the time.

Lamoille County State’s Attorney Paul Finnerty said his office will work with police to “determine if it’s anything more than an accident” based on the autopsy reports.
