Shortly after 11 p.m., Wendi Robinson, 42, allegedly was driving at high speeds when she lost control of her 2016 Toyota Corolla, according to a press release from the Oregon State Police. The car lost traction, drove off the southbound edge of the road, overturned and came to rest partially submerged, according to state police.

Gearhart Police Department personnel worked in over three feet of water to extricate a female driver, Gearhart Fire Chief Bill Eddy said Monday. Personnel had to dive underwater to extricate and search for any additional occupants, he said. The vehicle landed in approximately 3 feet of water upside down 50 feet from the highway, it was submerged well above the windows.
