A dive team was deployed to rescue two people who were trapped inside the car. Authorities confirmed on Saturday that the two occupants died.

Authorities say the other vehicle involved was a large car carrier. The driver of that vehicle was not injured, authorities said.

The Worcester County District Attorney's Office said Saturday afternoon that the victims were a father and son, but added that they would not be publicly identified until family members had been notified.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
