DARE COUNTY -- 2 people went to Outer Banks Hospital Saturday night after their car went off the roadway near the Manns Harbor Bridge and ended up in Croatan Sound.

The 2 people were able to get out of the car.

Dispatchers were unsure of their condition when paramedics took them to the hospital.

The Outer Banks Voice reported the car was submerged in 12 feet of water and that divers were standing by to help with the recover.

The newspaper said there was fog in the area around 7:00 p.m. when the car went into the sound. The storm Saturday also left the roadway wet.

North Carolina Highway Patrol is handling the investigation.
