MARIETTA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Two people were killed when a car ran off a Marietta road and flipped into a pond Thursday morning, according to Greenville County Deputy Coroner Kent Dill.

Laura Campbell, spokeswoman for the sheriff's office, said Slater-Marietta firefighters called deputies when they found the car at 711 Hart Cut Rd. She said divers from the sheriff's office were sent to the scene to help investigate.

Dill said 28-year-old Carl Robertson, of Marietta, and 28-year-old Derrick Camp, of Travelers Rest, were killed in the crash. He said the vehicle, which was being driven by Robertson, ran off a curve in the road and into the pond, where it flipped.

Autopsies were scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

The Highway Patrol was investigating the cause of the crash.
