BOSTON (NBC) -

Two people are dead after the truck they were riding in crashed into Boston's Charles River late last night.

The pickup truck went into the river near the Boston Museum of Science.

State police said the vehicle was traveling on the O'Brien Highway when it hit another car and crashed through a guardrail, plunging into the water Saturday.

The Boston Fire Department said the vehicle was "completely submerged" when first responders got to it.

The two victims were rescued and taken to Mass General Hospital, where they were pronounced dead. There were no other passengers in the truck at the time of the accident.
