Car makes icy plunge after failing to stop on dead end road

A ride along a dark and dead end road could have ended much worse for two people in Vaudreuil-Dorion overnight.

The man and woman were driving along Breslay around midnight when they approached the end of the road but found themselves unable to stop.

It appears the car then slid off road, and plunged into the frigid water of the lac des Deux-Montagnes.

The pair were able to get out of the car themselves, another motorist in the area stopped to help them.

Both were taken to hospital to be treated for hypothermia, they are expected to recover.
