NAPLES, Fla — The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal crash that happened Thursday morning in the gated community of The Isles of Collier Preserve.

A 52-year-old Naples woman in a Tesla was traveling east on Indies Avenue approaching a left curve in the road that leads to a bridge.

Troopers say the driver was not able to negotiate the left curve. That's when the left side tires of the car collided with the curbing.

The Tesla crossed the shrubbery, left the road, went airborne and traveled northeast into the canal.

Troopers say it was fully submerged with the driver inside.

The woman was pronounced dead on scene.
