September 21, 2015

Two women were found dead Saturday in a SUV submerged in the Fryingpan River near Basalt. The Basalt Fire Department and Eagle County Sheriff's Office say a cyclist saw the submerged vehicle and didn't know if anyone was inside. Authorities aren't sure when it happened. The Aspen Times reports the vehicle went about 70 feet down a steep embankment before plunging into the river.
