2 die when car goes into canal off Alligator Alley

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – The Florida Highway Patrol says two people died when their car drove into a canal on a stretch of Interstate 75 known as Alligator Alley.

The crash happened Sunday as the four-day Thanksgiving weekend was winding down, causing traffic to be blocked for several hours.

Sgt. Mark Wysocki tells news outlets that divers pulled a man and woman from the canal. Their identities haven’t been released yet.

No further details were immediately available.
