PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say divers are trying to locate an occupant who might be inside a vehicle after it plunged into a pond in suburban Atlanta.

Gwinnett County fire officials say they were called to the pond in Peachtree Corners during the morning rush period, around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Fire officials say witnesses reported that a person was inside the vehicle when it went into the water.

Authorities said the car remained completely submerged under water shortly before 8:30 a.m.

Gwinnet County fire officials say a dive team from Hall County has been called to the scene, which is about 20 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta.

Few other details were immediately available.
