Hoover, AL (WBRC) - Hoover Police confirmed the woman who drove her car into Star Lake Friday night has died.

The 68-year-old woman, who has not been identified, was transported to Brookwood Hospital after the accident. Investigators say the woman had attended an event at the Hoover Country Club prior to the crash.

This case involved a rapid response and intense effort by members of the Hoover Police and Fire Departments. This case involved Police Patrol officers, officers who are members of the Hoover Police Dive Team as well as many Hoover firefighters, including the Technical Rescue Unit.

This accident is under investigation by Hoover officers who are trained in crash reconstruction. At this time investigators do not believe this was anything other than a tragic accident, but weather may have been a contributing factor.

The City of Hoover, the Hoover Police Department and the Hoover Fire Department jointly express their condolences to the family of the victim.
