There was an early-morning car crash this morning (June 17, 2015) in Aurora in which a SUV drove into a retention pond.

According to Aurora Police, the accident happened at approximately 4:56 a.m., and began when a SUV, driven by a 31-year-old woman from Aurora, was driving out of a parking lot in the 1700 block of North Edgelawn Drive.  At that point, she collided with a car driven by a 35-year-old man from Aurora.

After that collision, the SUV drove into a retention pond to the east.

An Aurora police officer was able to pull a 7-year-old girl (the daughter of the SUV’s driver) from the water.  However, the SUV’s driver as well her 9-year-old son remained submerged in the SUV for approximately 30 minutes before they were pulled from the water by the Aurora Fire Department Dive Team.
