INDIANAPOLIS — One person is dead after a car went into a pond on the east side of Indianapolis.

Around 2:20 a.m., Indianapolis fire rescue crews were sent to the 34th and Shadeland area for a report of a car in the water.

Crews found a Toyota SUV fully submerged in a pond outside of a nearby business. One male passenger in the SUV had made it out of the vehicle on his own and was helped up the embankment by bystanders.

The driver, a woman, was still in the vehicle. Dive crews located the driver inside the vehicle around 2:50 a.m. She was pronounced dead at the hospital at 2:59 a.m.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 26-year-old Olinda Filomena Guevara.

Fire officials say the depth of where the car was found was between 6 and 7 feet.

They believe the car was headed southbound on Shadeland when the driver left the road, crossed the ditch, and entered the pond about 50 yards off Shadeland.
