It was being driven by deputies from the Horry County Sheriff's Office.

Bishop and Flood have been placed on administrative leave while three separate investigations are conducted into the deaths.

Thom Berry, a spokesman for the State Law Enforcement Division, said SLED agents have been sent to the scene to investigate.

The deputies in the front of the van said they were able to climb on the roof and wait for a rescue but were unable to reach the women. Thompson said neither deputy had committed any significant past driving infractions in connection with their duties. "She said if you ever have anything bad, just put all your bad feelings in these cupcakes and eat them", said Rose. "It makes it seem like someone took a very unnecessary risk in creating the problem in the first place".

"I was confused as to why someone would, or the police officers would drive down a road that was in an area that was known for flooding. It's come up 2 feet since last night". At almost 7 p.m. Wednesday, State Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry confirmed the bodies had been recovered.
