Woman found dead in Intracoastal Waterway after crash

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH, Fla. - The body of a woman was pulled from the Intracoastal Waterway after her car crashed on the Indian Rocks Beach Causeway bridge Thursday morning.

A Jeep, driven by 49-year-old Robin Smith, was eastbound on the bridge and struck a concrete guardrail. The Jeep overturned and came to rest on the driver's side on the drawbridge section.

An eyewitness told police that Smith was seen getting out of the vehicle. She then walked to the south side of the bridge, climbed over the railing and jumped.

She was found a short time later and taken to a dock where she was pronounced dead.

A dog left behind was picked up by Animal Control.

The investigation continues.
