Police say two people have died after a vehicle crashed into the Kalamazoo River in southern Michigan.

WOOD-TV reports the vehicle crashed into the river in Battle Creek early Friday, flipped and floated down the river. Crews pulled it from the water near the Washington Street bridge. WWMT-TV reports the two people who died weren't immediately identified.

The crash happened near where a car went into the river on March 4. That vehicle floated away, prompting days of searching. It was found on Sunday by a fisherman. Police say they were told a 31-year-old man may have been driving the car, but a body wasn't found.
