After a car crashed into Lake Ontario in Mississauga early Thursday morning, a 25-year-old man was discovered dead.
At approximately 3 a.m., Peel police received a complaint regarding a vehicle in the water at Lakefront Promenade and Lakeshore Road East.
The vehicle had two occupants at the time, according to authorities.
Following the event, one of the occupants managed to flee and was treated in a hospital, while the whereabouts of the other person were unknown, according to authorities.
Due to poor visibility under the water, police said crews were unable to determine if there was anyone inside the sedan and a tow company was called in to remove the vehicle from the water.
Shortly before 1 p.m., police said members of their dive team were able to successfully remove the vehicle from the water and that a 25-year-old man was located deceased inside of it.
It is unclear how the car ended up in the water but Const. Akil Mooken said it went into the lake via a boat launch in the area.
The vehicle was fully submerged when police arrived and the diver on scene said he could only see about six inches in front of him while underneath the water.
Mooken said the incident is being treated as suspicious at this time.
