Authorities say a suburban Kansas City woman has died from injuries sustained when she crashed into a pond.

Police in Olathe, Kansas, say Helen Riddle, 61, apparently suffered a medical emergency last week before her sport utility vehicle struck a car and went off the side of a road. She then crashed through a fence before the SUV became submerged in the pond.

Police announced Tuesday that she died after she was rescued and rushed to a hospital with critical injuries. Divers also searched the water after the crash to make sure no one else had been in the SUV.
