SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Crews have pulled a minivan out of San Francisco Bay a day after it plunged into the water with the driver inside.
KGO-TV reports the woman's body was in the vehicle when it was recovered Saturday.
Her name has not been released.
The minivan jumped a curb near San Francisco Marina Yacht Harbor Friday before a number of horrified witnesses, sank and got stuck in mud at the bottom of the bay.
Several sailors jumped off their boat to try to rescue the driver and ended up having to be rescued themselves.
Rescuers halted the recovery operation overnight because of strong currents and because they did not have the right equipment.
Police were investigating what led the car to go into the water.
