West Seneca woman died when vehicle plunges into Niagara River

A West Seneca woman died Saturday after driving her vehicle into the Niagara River from the boat launch at the foot of Ontario Street, Buffalo police said.

Officers pulled the 54-year-old woman’s body from her submerged car. She was transported to Kenmore Mercy Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Her name is being withheld pending family notification. Buffalo police are continuing to investigate, but said it appeared the woman deliberately drove into the water.
