EARTH CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two St. Louis-area men are safe after their car plunged into an icy pond.

The accident happened Monday morning in northwest St. Louis County.  The men, both in their 20s, were uninjured.

Police received a cell phone call about 6:40 a.m. that a car had driven into a pond along the Earth City Expressway. Police say the driver may have been going too fast.

Both men got out and were able to swim to shore.
