A man and a woman died after their vehicle was swept away in floodwaters in Hoover, Alabama, on Wednesday night.
The officials identified the victims as two 23-year-olds, Latin Marie Hill and Myles Jared Butler.
The victims attempted to drive through the flooded road but the swift waters resulted in the vehicle being pinned against a guardrail on a small bridge over a creek.
After some time, the vehicle went over the guardrail and drowned in the water.
Search and rescue crews worked overnight to find the victims but couldn’t find them.
At 9 a.m. Thursday, dive team members found the submerged vehicle and recovered the bodies.
