Woman killed when car overturns, lands upside-down in canal

YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - Yuma County authorities say alcohol appears to be a factor in the death of a driver whose car ended up upside down and partially submerged in a canal.

The Sheriff's Office says the car went off a road in the Somerton area Sunday morning and struck a canal berm before the driver lost control and the vehicle overturned.

The driver was identified as 50-year-old Armanda Orijel Vergara of San Luis.
