Two people were rescued from a car that plunged into a pond in Killingly on Wednesday afternoon.
The car hit a utility pole and then went into the pond on Hartford Pike near Pond Road.
A passerby helped get the elderly driver and passenger out of the car, according to fire officials. The driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital to be evaluated.
Hartford Pike was closed for several hours while crews repaired the broken utility pole. The road reopened around 6 p.m.
