UPDATE: Police Lieutenant Says 2 Women Stable After Car Crashes into Bolingbrook Pond

Driver of vehicle and Good Samaritan both reported in stable condition.

Emergency crews pulled two victims out of a pond following a crash early Monday night near the intersection of Avalon Lane and Lindsey Lane in Bolingbrook, according to Police Lt. Mike Rompa.

A 35-year-old woman—identified as the driver the vehicle—and a 46-year-old female Good Samaritan were rescued and are in stable condition, Rompa said. He said both were transported to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital and are being treated for hypothermia.

Rompa said the Bolingbrook Police 9-1-1 Dispatch Center received several calls in reference to a vehicle which entered the pond near Volunteer Park—Avalon & Lindsey—at about 6 p.m. He said the preliminary investigation indicates the vehicle left the roadway and ceased movement on the ice in the pond.

"A short time after, the vehicle broke through the ice and became partially submerged in the water," Rompa said.

After arriving on the scene, Rompa said Bolingbrook police and fire department officials located the vehicle in the pond, and both of the women were rescued by emergency personnel.

Rompa said the incident is currently under investigation.
