5:30 p.m. UPDATE: Oregon State Police say the vehicle that crashed into Klamath Lake Tuesday afternoon was the result of icy roads.

Police say two people were involved. A 39-year-old woman was driving the car westbound at 50 miles per hour on Highway 140 when she slipped off the road near milepost 58. She and a 10 year old girl were pulled from the car after it crashed into the lake.

Neither were hurt.

Original post: 

Two people are expected to be okay after they were pulled from a submerged car in Klamath Lake.

Our partner in Klamath Falls, Randy Adams from Wynne Broadcasting was on the scene and confirmed this information.

The two people, one a woman in her 30s, and an 10-year-old child were in the car. They have not been identified yet.

The vehicle is still submerged off of the 140 near milepost 58 and traffic delays are likely until they can get the car out of the water. 

This is a developing story.
