A man and woman were found dead inside a car Saturday after authorities say it ran off the parking lot and into the Waccassasa boat ramp.

The Florida Highway Patrol says a 77-year-old man and a 73-year--old woman both from Lecanto were found inside the submerged 2017 Toytoa Prius. Their names have not been released pending notification of their family.

Troopers say it's unknown why the car drove off the Waccasassa boat ramp parking lot and into the river. The incident remains under investigation.
