SISTER BAY (WLUK) -- One person died when a car was driven into the water at Sister Bay Marina.

The Door County Sheriff's Office says it was called to the scene just before 10 p.m. Saturday.

Deputies pulled a 24-year-old De Pere woman out of the car. She said that another woman, a 24-year-old from Sobieski, was still in the car. Paramedics dove into the water and tried twice to find her, but the cold water was a challenge. A member of the Door County Dive Team arrived and was able to find the woman.

Both victims were taken to the hospital. There, the Sobieski woman was pronounced dead and the De Pere woman was treated for injuries.

Sheriff's officials are still investigating the incident. Part of the investigation is determining who was the driver, which sheriff's officials say they still don't know.
