GRANT COUNTY, Wash— Dive crews were set to resume a search early Monday for a driver in a Grant County wreck.

A father and his three sons crashed Sunday into an irrigation canal near Coulee City, according to authorities.  Rescuers were able to pull the three boys from the water and take them to a hospital.  Crews attempted to locate the father in the water but had to call off the search due to lack of daylight.

Doctors pronounced an 8-year-old boy dead at a local hospital.  Two other boys, ages 10 and 12, were expected to be okay.  However, they were treated for some injuries and potential hypothermia.

Their identities have not been released.  Authorities did not release the cause of the crash.
