A teenage driver was found dead inside a submerged car in a river in northwestern Minnesota, authorities said.

Authorities in Polk County received a call about the vehicle floating in the Red Lake River in Crookston around 4:35 p.m. Wednesday, the Sheriff's Office said.

A police officer saw that the car was occupied before it "became fully submerged," a statement from the Sheriff's Office read.

Fire rescue personnel entered the river in a watercraft and found the car with the help of a drone.

Divers from a Grand Forks County rescue unit found the 16-year-old girl inside the car, the Sheriff's Office said. Her age and identity have yet to be released.

The body was taken to the University of North Dakota Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy. The Sheriff's Office said that no foul play is suspected.
