DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

One person is dead after a two vehicle accident led one of the vehicles into a retention pond on Daniel Island Tuesday night.

The Charleston Police Department says the incident started at 8 p.m. on Seven Farms Drive in front of the Tennis Center when one vehicle rear ended another vehicle.

According to police, the driver of the vehicle that rear ended the other vehicle then continued a short distance into a retention pond.

"That driver was taken to the hospital and has died," CPD officials said. 

A report by police states that it appears at this time that a medical event is the cause of the accident.

More information is expected to be released by the Berkeley Count Coroner's Office. The identity of the deceased has not been released.

A car was seen being pulled out of the pond earlier Tuesday night.

According to Charleston County dispatch officials, crews had initially responded to a report of an accident in the area of Seven Farms Drive area which was then reported as a hit-and-run.

Video from the scene showed police blocking a portion of Seven Farms Drive. 

Live 5 News' Kolbie Satterfield reported a tow truck responded to the pond and towed the car out of the lake. 

In addition, emergency officials were spotted putting on scuba gear. 

Charleston police officials did confirm earlier that officers responded to the incident. 

The fire department and EMS were also dispatched to the area. 

Residents reported several police officers responding earlier tonight. 

A person who works across from the lake reported a vehicle went into the lake following what appeared to be a hit-and-run.
