ATHENS TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- We're learning more about how a car ended up in the Susquehanna River in Bradford County, taking the lives of a father and his 1-year-old son.

According to police, Derek Marshall was driving with a suspended license from previous DUI charges when his vehicle went into the river near Athens.

Marshall and his baby son Maddox died.

His girlfriend, Emily Hoey, told police Marshall saw a police car and feared he would end up in prison if caught. She says he started driving fast on Sheshequin Road and lost control before crashing into the river.
