FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say divers have pulled a body from a garbage truck that drove off a Florida highway and into a canal.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the truck had been heading east from nearby Collier County when it drove off the road for unknown reasons. The garbage truck was fully submerged.

A Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue crew responded, and divers immediately began searching the water.
