FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Highway Patrol says two people died when their car drove into a canal on a stretch of Interstate 75 known as Alligator Alley.
    
The crash happened Sunday as the four-day Thanksgiving weekend was winding down, causing traffic to be blocked for several hours.
    
Sgt. Mark Wysocki tells news outlets that divers pulled a man and woman from the canal. Their identities haven't been released yet.
    
No further details were immediately available.
