A Springville woman and a baby were found inside a car Saturday that apparently hit the side of a bridge and went into the Spanish Fork River, authorities said.

The woman, 25, was found dead in the driver's seat, said Lt. Matt Johnson, a spokesman for the Spanish Fork Police.

A fisherman had found the car on its top, according to a news release. When emergency responders arrived, they tipped it onto its side.

Johnson said an 18-month-old girl who was in a car seat was transported to Mountain View Hospital and then to Primary Children's Hospital in critical condition.

In addition, three police officers and four firefighters who responded to the scene were taken to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia, Johnson said. They were later released.

The woman's family members said she left Salem about 10 p.m. Friday to drive to her Springville home, according to Johnson. He said a resident near the river thought he heard something Friday night and checked the area but didn't see anything; based on that, the accident might have occurred between 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., Johnson said.

Police are waiting to release the woman's name until they can notify her family.
