Police have identified the two people who died after their car crashed into the Housatonic River.  The accident happened late Friday afternoon off Roosevelt Drive in Seymour.  Police identified the victims as 54-year-old Connie Crowell and her 22-year-old son, John Crowell, both of Monroe.  Police say the pair were rescued from the car after the fire department used a winch to drag the SUV closer to shore.  Resuscitation efforts at the scene were unsuccessful and they were both pronounced dead.  Firefighters commandeered a resident’s boat while other members entered the water in life jackets and rescue suits.  The response came from many jurisdictions because it was a large, complex scene.  The investigation is ongoing.
