ELKADER, Iowa (AP) - Two people have been rescued after their vehicle ran into the Turkey River in northeast Iowa.

Authorities were called to the scene in Elkader around 2 p.m. Wednesday. Witnesses say the pickup truck was submerged on its side, trapping a man inside and a woman atop the other side, out of the water.

Firefighters using boats reached and rescued both people, and they were taken to a hospital.

Their names, the cause of the accident and other details haven’t been released.
