4 teens survive after cars sink in pond

November 20, 2008 5:37:48 AM PST
Police believe speed and driver inexperience were factors that left two cars carrying four teenagers in a pond in West Windsor. The 17-year-old boys swam to safety before the vehicles sank in the frigid water at the Mercer Oaks East golf course Wednesday.

Their names were not released.

The accident happened after the boys were dismissed from West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South.

Police believe an Oldsmobile sedan failed to negotiate a turn on Conover Road, crashed through a fence and rocketed into the pond. Police say a Volkswagen station wagon that was close behind followed the Olds into the pond along the 13th green.

Fire Department divers helped remove the vehicles from the water.
