HURON, S.D. (AP) — Two men have died in a crash into a wastewater lagoon in Huron.

Police say the men were in a car that veered off a road, went into a ditch, crashed through a fence and into the lagoon. The vehicle was discovered Monday when someone noticed the fence was damaged.

The Argus Leader reports authorities say the victims, 29-year-old Mauricio Lopez-Morales and 23-year-old Francisco Artemio Lopez-Ramos, were last seen Saturday. Investigators say alcohol and speed appear to be factors in the crash.
