CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A 24-year-old Cape Coral woman's body was pulled from a canal Saturday afternoon after police say she crashed her car and drowned. Alexie Rai Krill of Cape Coral was driving westbound on Beach Parkway when she ran the stop sign at Surfside Blvd. and crashed into the canal.
A broken Flex Stake was the first clue to a woman walking nearby the Southwest Cape intersection. When Police arrived they eventually found the car, with Krill deceased inside.
Neighbor Bill Seegmuller isn't surprised to see a wreck at this intersection, which is a sharp 90 degree turn.
"I'm here 11 years and this is the third time this has happened, that I know about."
The car was eventually recovered and Cape Coral Police re-opened the streets. But they're stressing to drivers in the area to be aware of the sharp turn and drive carefully.
"Because this is a rather sharp 90 degree turn if you're travelling at an excessive speed or your not familiar with this area this turn can come up on you fairly quickly," said Sgt. Dana Coston.
