A 38-year-old woman is dead after losing control of her vehicle, crashing into a Hydro pole and landing in the Richelieu River, early Sunday morning.

The incident happened in Saint-Charles-sur-Richelieu, 50 kilometres Northeast of Montreal.

A Sûreté du Québec officer was first on the scene after neighbours called 911 upon hearing the crash.

At this point, the woman's vehicle was partially submerged in the river.

The SQ officer tried to rescue the woman from the vehicle, but was forced to back off because the water was too cold.

Firefighters arrived and were able to get the victim out of the river, but she was later pronounced dead in hospital.

Investigators are now trying to determine what caused the woman to lose control of her vehicle.
