ESTERO, Fla. - A crash Sunday morning claims the life of an Estero woman.  The Florida Highway Patrol says 72-year-old Ruthann McBride was driving east on Slalom Course Court, just past Barefoot Ski Boulevard.

McBride failed to negotiate a left turning curve and drove through the grass shoulder and hit a palm tree.

The FHP says she was pronounced dead at the scene.
