According to Lt. Bruce, officers believe she was driving south on Hardy Rd., when she veered off and crashed into a concrete bridge before landing in the bayou.
It's unclear if alcohol played a role, but medical examiners will looking into it as they perform a toxicology report.
As a result of the incident, South Hardy Toll Rd. was shut down for several hours.
This is a developing story.
