VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Two people were rescued after their vehicle crashed into Little Neck Creek near the Oceanfront early Monday morning, according to the Virginia Beach Police Department.
The crash happened at the intersection of Pinewood Road and 32nd Street. Crews responded shortly after midnight and saw multiple people in the water and a submerged, upside-down vehicle.

The Virginia Beach Police Department said both passengers were taken to the hospital for treatment. One of the passengers reportedly has life-threatening injuries.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the VBPD Special Operations Traffic Safety Unit.
