Authorities in Cheektowaga say that a woman suffered a medical emergency moments before crashing her car into an industrial building on William Street.

The woman's car crashed through a chain link fence, knocked down a tree and then launched into a building. The vehicle then dropped into a 12-foot retention pond that was filled with about three feet of water.

Cheektowaga police believe that the woman could have been in the pond for up to four hours. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
