GOLDEN -- Two people were hospitalized after their car flipped over and went into the water in Clear Creek Canyon on Sunday.

Colorado State Police say this happens quite often, and while the victims were probably not speeding, they likely got distracted and failed to negotiate a turn. Police said no drugs or alcohol were involved in the incident.

The Golden Fire Department said they have responded to similar accidents six times this year.

The two crash victims were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.
