GRAFTON TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) -

The Elyria Highway Patrol received a call for a report of a car into a pond on Eastern Grafton Road near Mennell Road around 7:20 a.m. Saturday morning.

When emergency crews arrived, the car was not visible in the water, but tire tracks could be seen leading into the pond.

A witness told troopers that the driver, later identified as 18-year-old Dominic Zunis of Elyria, was northbound on Mennell Road and ran the stop sign and went off the road driving into the partially frozen pond.

A dive team was called in and spent over an hour working to recover the vehicle.  Around 9 a.m., they found Zunis. 

After he was pulled from the water, he was Lifeflighted to Metro Health Medical Center where he later died.

Multiple agencies assisted at the crash site.

Troopers say alcohol is a suspected factor in the crash.
