CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - A woman has been found dead in her submerged vehicle after she drove off Lee’s Landing in Conway.

Horry County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Dan Shankle tells news outlets that the body was found Tuesday morning in the Waccamaw River by divers who began searching for the woman shortly after car fell into the water Monday night.
